The food :-) the Staff, the Wine. the location. All good. We had a mixed menu of starters, a choice of entree and a mix of deserts in a large group. This is not high cuisine but very tasty Italian food.

We ate here recently with friends, and we all had very mixed reactions. We made reservations and we were seated the minute we arrived, but had no choice of seating - we were placed at a table right out in the middle of the room, even though there were tables along the wall. The place is very noisy, so it... More

No one's fault and the folks at 54 Mint could not have been nicer or more supportive of our bit of trauma. Once we were all... More

They took us 20 minutes late for our reservation. The food started out good, fairly authentic italian. But there was a hair in my food. I could not eat the remainder if my food.

We visited 54 Mint as we love italian food and were not disappointed. We sat in the wine cellar, which reminded us of restaurants in Italy we had visited in the past. All the pasta is homemade and was great! Good wine selection and the value was great. We were travelling with our daughter and they were very kid friendly!... More

We stumbled on this place across the street from our hotel the day we arrived (and needed keeping awake from jet lag). It is wonderful! Genuinely Italian (a view obviously shared by the countless Italian language conversations going on around us and the effusive greetings of guests by the staff). A great Italian wine list (and they really know their... More

This was such a surprise to find this place. It's a italian (Rome) themed restaurant. Service is always good. Ambiance is simple and refined. Food is fantastic! Great wine list too!
