We visited this restaurant while in town for a triathlon early in August. We made a reservation a few weeks in advance. The place is very quiet, somewhat casual (I wore nicer clothes, but many people were in jeans, etc.), and small. It was only a few blocks from our hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn. We loved the crab cake... More

We were staying around the corner at the Marriott-- we walked up and had an amazing dinner. The wine list was great. We had soup, salad and pasta --all excellent. All fresh and tasty.

I had the Halibut Cheeks special which was excellent and the other adults had the Osso Bucco and the Ravioli. everyone raved about the meal. Kids were accommodated too. Our Server, MATT, was first rate and the bar tender made some fantastic house special martini's. Loved... More

We ate lunch at this restaurant and I had the grilled chicken in pesto cream sauce and a caesar salad. I believe it was the Grilled Chicken Robusto? This dish was excellent and the bread was great also. The waitress was great and the food only took about 30 minutes. I will return to this restaurant the next time I... More

Not too expensive but delicious unique Italian food. I had stuffed ravioli with lamb with a spicy tomatoe sauce (changes daily), husband had stuffed bone in pork chops with a balsamic glaze. Very good food and service. Would love to have tried a basic meal.

We booked for 16 people that night, and I must say the food was delicious and the service was really fantastic. The wine list is somewhat affordable too. The entire group was really satisfied. My personal pick is the Osso-Bucco, cooked to perfection. And the smile of this waitress (that unfortunately I can't remember the name) was the icing on... More

We almost walked away from the restaurant after reading the menu, we were tired from the day of travel, and wanted easy food choices. SO GLAD WE STAYED! Cozy atmosphere, small with only 10 or 15 tables. Would suggest going early or making reservations. Waitstaff was pleasant, unhurried and very knowledgable. Started with Tre Inizi. An herbed goat cheese spread... More

Nice downtown location, easy walk from City Center hotels. Extensive menu and wine list with many offered by the glass . Service was professional and not rushed.
