“Very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

We have eaten here a couple of times. The first time the restaurant was completely full and seemed to be run by only 2 people. They were wonderful! They never seemed overwhelmed, and our service was better than average. Our food was wonderful and came out quickly. If they were truely short staffed, I applaud them for their hard work. We returned a few weeks later to find the food and service just as wonderful. We will be back.

“Superb Italian in the City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2010

A friend and I dined here on a weeknight. Although they opened at 5, the doors were locked. A quick call to the restaurant indicated that the server had not yet arrived (it was 5:30), however they would let us in. The gentleman who let us in said he wasn't a server, however he served us the entire night and did an outstanding job.
We started the meal with their bread, olive oil and parmesan cheese. I had the fettucine alfredo which had nice, thick slices of mushrooms and a wonderfully thick sauce. My dining companion had their filet mignon which arrived on a bed of asparagus with fried shredded potatoes. Her dish looked great and she raved about the taste.
The atmosphere is upscale without being stuffy. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. We ended the meal with a portion of tiramisu each. It was very good but a little light for traditional tiramisu.
Once again, the impromptu server took great care of us and the foot was first-rate. I will definitely dine here again.
