Great Italian food, with a large selection to please everyone. We ate there on the Tuesday, early, so we did not make reservations. Suggest reservations if you plan to dine on the weekend as this is a very popular restaurant. I had the roast duck (my first) and it was excellent, crispy outside and moist inside -- yum.

We did not have reservations & they welcome walk ins. They warned us that we would have an hour wait, so we sat in the piano bar which was very enjoyable. The waiter told me he would surprise me with his favorite drink, & it was a delicious lemon martini with fresh basil. After being seated we ate the most... More

I am so glad that we did not miss out on dinner here. It was recommended by our carriage driver and we really enjoyed the meal. It is so nice to go out, have a nice selection to chose from and not feel so stuffed that you can't move after. They don't take reservations so go early and don't give... More

We were in a shop talking with the owner and asked about a great place to east to celebrate our anniversary was and we were referred to Irene's. If you plan on going, make sure you make a reservation, you are seated first. Our wait staff was wonderful, attentive and friendly. The food is incredible, I suggest the filet mignon,... More

Definitely make reservations. The waiters and staff were all incredibly apologetic that we had to wait a bit for the table, but the wait is well worth it. Every dish that we ordered was excellent. The sauces and spices were just perfect. And definitely leave room for desert! This is absolutely on my list to come back to next time... More

We only went here after walking out another restaurant not far away and asking a passer by where to find a half decent feed. All I can say is "very impressed" . From the moment we entered we were made to feel extremely welcome. Our waiter was was a friendly and the food was exceptional. Highly recommended. If you go... More
