This place was recommended by our Concierge guy who made our reservation for us from hotel Hilton Anatole. I was a little concerned but he was spot on! The food! The Service! The ambiance! Magical and over the top. Don't forget to order the Tirramasu! We really loved it and will return. The decorations for Christmas made it so special.

Great atmosphere, service and food. Service was prompt and food was prepared quickly, but we never felt rushed.

We had a group lunch here, luckily we had a reservation since it's not very big. We took up the entire middle of the restaurant. The food is good but definitely a little pricey for a normal weekday work lunch. I think we'll keep this place as a "special occasions" option. They don't' really have parking so if you can't...

Several people had recommended this place for good Italian. We all thought it was average only. The atmosphere was very good, but they need to improve their food quality. They had a very good wine list and we had no problems with our choices. We ate on the outside, and it was very romantic and pleasant. Inside seating is very... More

Very glad we stoped here tonight. I had calamri to start and the new York strip. It was great. My friend had lobster tail and it was equally great. There skinny margaritas where right on. The staff where efficient and friendly. Only thing I could do without is the noise level but We will be back!

Went on business with customers - as recommended by local Dallas colleagues. Good traditional Italian food. Generous portions. Lovely wines.

this is a cool place inside but with very basic and bland foods. Not the rich flavors that the menu would suggest and server was less than efficient and I felt he "worked" us on the wine order....ordering us up. Didn't like the feel of the place either after that. Too many other choices.

I had dinner at this fine restaurant this past weekend and the food and service were simply outstanding. And, the price is more than reasonable for a large city such as Dallas. The scallops were prepared beatifully and just "melted" in my mouth. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The restaurant is rather noisy, but that is a... More

Found this restaurant on Open Table when we were in the mood for Italian food in an unfamiliar city. We had a very professional wait person and delicious dinners. Very nice and homey atmosphere, I will dine there again for sure next time I'm visiting the big D.
