Let me say this up front - check your tourist attitude before deciding this is the evening, and the venue, for you. If you've got white sneakers on save yourself some embarrassment and go somewhere else. If you get a reservation you have your table for the evening and you should savor every moment. One of the best restaurants we've been to in Italy. Extensive, well balanced, and deep wine list that is very affordable. GO BIG and lean on the staff for suggestions; we had a 2008 Putruccino at their urging - 65% Sangiovese, 20% Cab Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and considered the smaller brother to the the estate's Petrucci. It was a gorgeous red, fleshy and supple, that opened after 45 minutes as a perfect counter point to the Fiorentino beef we had as a secundi.
It is okay to order and split courses and we have come to this so that we can have a full, four course meal. The pacing is Italian, our meal was 2.5 hours of gracious service and food. My opener, following an amazing, shared artisan cheese appetizer was a black kale and white bean soup, superb. The secundi/second course was beef, more on that later, and the evening closed by a caramel flan and digestif that could have been a signature dish at lesser restaurants.
Regarding the beef, it is carved from local Chianina beef and it is a treat. If you are a fan of Morton's, Ruth's Chris, Capital Grill you will enjoy it. We are spoiled and regularly get what we consider as the finest beef in the world - Callicrate Beef out of Colorado, produced by Mike Callicrate, so this wasn't so special for us. That shouldn't subtract from this though, we are a bit jaded. Really, if you have one night while in Italy to go for sensational food with wine, or like us, one of many, because we travel to eat, go here, go out of the way to go here. Dress appropriately, be respectful, have a great night. Highly regarded.
