Hosted a Business Group on Tuesday night, the restaurant was not busy.All food items selected where prepared in a meticulous manner with fresh ingredients and careful preparation and presentation. Apps, salads, soups and all 5 different main Entree's were very tasty. As it is an Italian themed restaurant all the wine selections were Italian, a challenge for someone not familiar... More

This restaurant and chef were so interesting on our food tour that we decided to have dinner there that night. My dish was a full trout fish that I can say I wasn't too crazy about having the full fish but Stewart had showed us how to peel the meat off gently as to not get any bones .... it... More

I had hopes for a fine dining experience. The food was delicious and along with presentation on the plate, it was way above average. But, the table service did not seem to match the ambience that restaurant tries to imbue, i.e., our server was inattentive, our meal was not paced very well nor was the table cleared very well. It...

I love the location of this restaurant, its tucked away down on Wall Street and it's nice and cozy inside. The lights are down low and just has a great vibe. The service was great- everyone was extremely nice and helpful. We sat next to the kitchen- everything looked amazing as it came out of the wood-fire oven. We started... More

The warm interior is very inviting and welcoming. Service is efficient without being intrusive. The menu however is limited and the features the evening we dined were animal parts, organs etc. disappointing for anyone not a fan. Making an entree choice challenging. Recommend viewing the online menu as well as calling to ask what the evening features are.

Don't miss this contemporary interpretation of Italian food. Chef Brian and his staff perform wonderful inspired dishes. With a menu that changes daily based on locally available items, we were totally blown away.

This is without a doubt one of the TOP TEN restaurants in Asheville. From beginning to end, it was excellent. Anchovies, Bresaola (made by the House), Burrata,and Salmon starters were remarkable. Outstanding Bucatini dish and wonderful pumpkin Risotto. Outstanding wood fired pizza. The steak and the trout dishes were exceptionally good. Love the olive oil cake. Servers are cordial, helpful...
