Lets get the really good stuff out of the way early. The house salad is as good or better than you will get ANY WHERE ELSE. I had the veal parmesian. Never had better and we have been to Venice, Milan and Rome. The spinach with garlic is excellent. As long as you like garlic, which I do. Desserts and cappuccino can't be beat. Service, I must admit is as good as, or better than we have ever had EVER. SERIOUSLY, BEST EVER. Here's my problem, snooty arrogance, subtly nuanced by the fact that they do not accept credit cards and are unwilling to separate checks for two couples. Many have complained they do not answer the phone, so reservations are " impossible" to get. We were there because friends had made reservations on there last visit knowing we would be visiting them.
Tip if you get there".....Eat in the basement, but not by the kitchen door or in front of the air conditioner. DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR WINE (BYO) AND YOUR FAVORITE AFTER DINNER DRINK. I RECOMMEND ANASETTE(sp)OR LEMONCELLO.
Simply the best.
