Third or fourth visit here over last few years and it never disappoints. Very good food (huge portions - the cannelloni will finish you off for a week), prompt service, and some excellent wines. I like the look and feel of the place too - dark wood but informal setting, and an attractive and spacious bar area. This place is... More

The food, the wine, the service...one of the best in the city and in my entire experience. There is a reason why you have to call two weeks ahead of time to get a reservation for Saturday night. This place is 1st class. Try any of their bruschetta selections as well! If the dining experience wasn't enough, they also have... More

Excellent food, good value (prices), atmosphere leaves a little bit to be desired. Open brick walls, can be loud. Parking tough, in old neighborhood in the city. Worth the stop

My favorite restaurant in Buffalo. Go dressed up or casual. Great atmosphere. Good service. Try the pork tenderloin or the Chicken-Chorizo Linguini. Also cannot go wrong with any of the Foccachia appetizers.

I honestly believe this is the best restaurant in Buffalo. I have never ordered something I was disappointed in. Highly recommend! And they have off street parking which is a plus.

Always busy but in a nice way. The food is well balanced and doesn't lack favor, despite the huge portions they serve up. Fried oysters were nice and crispy and the Ahi tuna tartar had a nice kick to it, courtesy of the Siracha. The Penne alla Arrabiata (angry Penne ) were al dente and had the crushed peppers provide...

I've been here twice and both times the food has been absolutely superb. We tried the carrot papperdelle this time, which was one of the best dishes I've had in a restaurant, and I don't normally like pasta dishes. My boyfriend and I also had the 'fondue for two'. The beef tenderloin tips that came with the fondue were so... More

I have been here twice, reservations are hard but this is truly a five star restaurant . The service is excellent, the food is of taste and perfection and located in a lovely eclectic Buffalo neighbourhood. The entries and the deserts were near perfect and cannot disappoint. We sat outdoors which felt apropos considering the name and the atmosphere being... More
