“Make sure Rocco is there before ordering...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

The service and food quality are great if Rocco is there to supervise the staff. We stayed at the hotel next door and had breakfast there every day for a week plus one lunch and one dinner. The menu has lots of choices for meats, pastas and seafood plus they have an extensive wine list. Their hot breakfast is a very good value - if Rocco is there. We noticed that everything was perfect when he was on the premises, otherwise the wait and cook staff would screw up a 3 item order.

This was a great find, conveniently located quiet restaurant with wonderful service. The food was very good, especially the pasta and the decor was very modern and attractive. The service was impeccable.

“Beautiful presentation of very bland food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2011

We started with the squid, grilled with lentils. The lentils were pureed and had very little flavor. There was one lone squid splayed on the top of the puree. The second course was pumpkin gnocchi with butter and sage. Again, very bland but fresh. For entrees, my date had a rack of lamb with potatoes. Bland but fresh, again. I had fillet mignon which was cooked to perfection but had no flavor and too much butter. The ambiance was nice and the wine selection good, but I was not moved by the food at all.
