This is a dining gem, located right next to the Vintage Park Hotel on 5th Ave. Outstanding menu, service and food! I loved the wine list with a huge selection of Italian and domestic wines by the glass. They have nicely organized the Italian wines by region, with several regional selections. The simple menu of starters, pastas and entrees offered a nice selection. We had the sweet potato gnocchi which is sautéed in sage butter, so it's slightly crispy outside and perfectly doughy inside - the buttery taste is fantastic. We were headed to a concert, so we skipped the pasta courses (must return to try!) and went straight for the entrees. I asked our server what he recommended between the pork shank and roast chicken - he sold me when he said the chicken was so good he could swim in it! I was not disappointed! The tender, moist chicken with crispy skin was amazing with a garlicky sauce and creamy risotto with a hint of lemon zest. Wow! The hubs went for the grilled lamb sirloin and it was so good I had to beg him to share! The mint yogurt sauce it laid on was perfect for the nicely seared, medium rare, tender lamb. We didn't have time for dessert because we had to get to our concert, but they looked delicious. Our next visit we will plan on dining Italian style - by allowing 3 full hours to savor our meal! Chef Pisano has a fantastic kitchen that will not disappoint you!
