This review is hard to find a specific place to start. Soooo many good things to say about this place. But there was one bad.
Gonna take you from start to finish on this great night. Unfortunately the bad was the first thing when we walked through the door. The host/FOH manager greeted us with a smug look and asked how many people were in our party. We said 6, he kind of rolled his eyes when we answered "no" to having reservations. There were 3 tables seated at this time and he said he couldn't seat us. We pushed a little and were finally seated at a 4 top and 2 of us at the bar. This is when the awesomeness started.
I sat at the bar with my buddy and we started off with an Argentinian Malbec and the Pruosciutto e Capra (recommended by our waiter). Both were amazing. The prosciutto melted in your mouth, goat cheese superb, the peppers roasted perfectly, and the pesto oil seasoned the bread to magnificence. I wanted to order this for my entree.
I overcame this desire and ordered Pappardelle Milano which was also recommended by our waiter. As his coworker was grabbing a beverage for her table she chimed in saying how amazing it was. I was sold before they told me that the pasta is handmade upstairs by one of the two brothers that runs this establishment this took it over the top for me. He also hand makes the fresh pastries. The other brother is the head chef. The noodles were cooked perfectly and were so flavorful, Then you add in the flavors of the filet mignon, sun dried tomatoes, chianti wine, the already tried fantastic goat cheese, and truffle oil to the homemade tomato sauce and you have the best pasta dish I have ever had. My mouth is watering right now thinking through the experience.
We finished off the night with a chocolate cake dessert, sorry I can't remember the name, that had a soft gooey center that melted in your mouth. It was served beautifully plated with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I was super full so this was a shared dessert. Everyone that tried it went on and on about this decadent dish.
So as you can see I'm a pretty big fan of this place. Every employee besides the manager provided stupendous customer service but he alone took my rating to 4 stars. I will say that this was the best Italian food I have had a chance to experience. The other people that I was with were thoroughly impressed also.
Almost forgot! The prices weren't stupid crazy either. We had an appetizer, two of their most expensive entrees (both of which were quite large), bottle of wine, and dessert brought us right around $100 before tip and totally worth it.
