The real deal

I've lived in Italy, and I'm an American/Italian. This is not your usual Americanized Italian restaurant. Everything is hand made and fresh. The grilled octopus is the best I've had in the US. I took my mom here. She was born in Italy. She agreed. The food is wonderful. You can't go wrong.

We stopped for lunch. Everything was really good. I got the soft shell shrimp dish with a curry sauce, with wedge fries, which were extra. The other girls got the cheeseburgers which looked amazing.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. I was hesitant at first, because I'm not a fan of Asian food in general, but I was pleasantly surprised. I went out with 6 other girls on a "Girls Night Out".

VERY reasonable prices for the food that you get. The atmosphere is very hip - dim lights, lots of artwork..I would recommend for a dinner party for adults although we did see families in there (was a little shocked). Waitress was attentive and couldn't have been nicer. The chef serves the food himself which was unique! Great place to go...
