This was my first lunch visit with a girlfriend. I checked Groupon and noticed that the online deal is for dinner only and is for an Italian meal. Upon entry into an office building you turn right and then head down a long staircase to get to the restaurant. Reservations are a must and when I... read more

Had a groupon and upon a friends good review , decided to give it a try. This hidden gem has been open since 2007, who knew.? Great service and exceptional food. The only disappointment was the dessert. The only made on premise dessert was Tiramuse which they ran out of for dinner. Our groupon was missing the bar code and... More

great food and service,clean but if claustrophobic you may want to go somewhere else. I went there for dinner with my family, prices are average ,they don't have parking but no problems as you can park in one of the garages around the corner or on the street. The surprise when the bill came they already added service charges (20%... More

I ate there for lunch with a business party. The food was pretty good, layout of restaurant is down in the basement of a building by city hall, if you are claustrophobic you may not like it, but I had plenty of room. Nothing amazing but good Italian food.

Enjoyed a marvelous early dinner in this amazing downstairs restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was even better! My wife met me downtown where I work prior to a 1900 meeting at carnegie mellon, so we stopped in about 1715. We were met by the attentive staff who quickly showed us our table and had wine for her... More

If you like really good food, great service, and good value, you will LOVE Storms. You will need a reservation between 11:30 and 1:00 but if you can go a bit later, or if you go for dinner, you will be fine. Try their Spots or their Pasta Scalia. YUM.

One of the great joys of traveling is the chance to find a "local's hangout." This is in the lower level of the appropriately named Law and Finance Building on 4th. Now frankly this is a local spot favored by lawyer and financial types (hence the appropriately named building) so if you're looking for big screen TVs and a sports... More

I wouldn't say that I loved my food. It was just OK. I feel they could have a much better menu selection.

Storms is in the below ground lower level of the Lawyer's Building. It has a nice atmosphere and the food is very good. The menu features Virginia Spots and various standard Italian dishes all prepared well. The problem I find with the restaurant is that the same menu could be found in a hundred other venues in the city... there... More
