Location location, This place has a great location! On a sunny day, if you can get a spot outside you are sitting on a great cross street for people and car watching. This is a sophisticated clientele with money to spend. Service is slow but if you came here why rush? This is a European restaurant where lunch goes till 4 ( Maybe not officially).
Bread yummi, risotto is unbelievable, ask for al dente - rosé wine so good (not the Banfi) tricolor salade yummi, tomatoes on caprese cold but burratta yummi sent it back tho ...can't do cold tomatoes - olives yummi and all shrimp are a type of langoustine, ragu so good. Ambience outside at the front, so good! Don't agree that this is a good restaurant for children. I wouldn't eat dinner here, it's a lunch spot.
