Great supper in beautiful setting

Visited this beautiful restaurant on a Saturday night. We were a party of 4 and started by having a drink at the bar. We were then seated in the dining room. With the lighting dimmed it created a nice ambience. We were greeted promptly by our waitress(Kayla or Kaylin) and she proceeded to take our... read more

We really enjoyed the meal at our recent visit to this restaurant. The food was delicious, staff friendly, and the decor was very nice. This is not a restaurant to go to if you are looking for quiet conversation with your date. We could barely hear each other over the background noise, and were seated uncomfortably close to other diners.... More

My husband and I wanted to experience something different. On the menu is the Chef's menu. It is $55.00 pp for a 3 course meal. You do not know what you will be eating which isn't bad for us since we are Italian and eat everything. The waitress doesn't even know what he will be cooking so we were all... More

Penne was al dente. Sauce I could of eaten on a flip flop. Great bread and evoo at table. Wine was delish ($10 per glass). Tiramisu was memorable and came... More

We'd not been to this restaurant since it moved from its old Broadway location. The new place is much nicer and the food is better. We had to wait about 20 minutes, but were rewarded with one of the two corner tables. Try to reserve one of these if you are a couple as it gives you some separation in... More

Terrific, a gem. This was our fifth or sixth visit and every meal every time was excellent. Perfectly prepared pasta dishes, tasty sauces, most appetizers are excellent, salads are fresh and dressed well.

Upon our arrival for dinner we were greeted by the friendly staff and immediately seated for the beginning of an excellent dining experience. Water glasses were promptly filled, the bread basket arrived and our waiter reviewed the evenings specials. I would recommend the mezzanine alla vodka as it was the best I have ever eaten. My cousin had spaghetti al... More

The food here is wonderful. So is the service. If they removed every other table it would feel much more comfortable. Very noisy, due to the overcrowding I'm sure. For food this expensive, I prefer to have enough room to keep the server's butt out my face when he is serving the table next to me.
