I am very conflicted about this restaurant. It deserves a lot of credit for trying to elevate itself above the pack of Boca ho-hum Italians. The menu is packed with ambitious (but sometimes overreaching) creations, and there are winners among the pastas and pizzas. But I am ambivalent about the service and the ambience. The servers are friendly enough, but they should not be trying to "upsell" so much. The decor almost tries too hard to be hip, and the extremely casual vibe does not seem to match the sophistication of the food. Overall, I would have to put this restaurant in the "disappointing" category.
