In our experience, we had a great service (hostess and waiter), I know that some previous comments mention that service was rude, but we didn't experience that. The restaurant is very dimly lit, so for a business meeting it may not work, but for a family, friends or romantic dinner it will be good. The atmosphere was very relaxed and... More

Italian born, formally trained, award winning Chef Alberto Gianati is there daily (and nightly) preparing the most exquisite Italian cuisine this side of the pond. He also greets his patrons to personally make sure that his food was to their liking. He has worked extensively in Italy, and has earned a coveted Michelin star and worked in my favorite Michelin...

Handmade pasta, wild boar ragu, fresh seafood cooked to perfection. Old school, professional wait staff. The chef, Alberto, is humble as well as truly talented. He brings his love of simply yet perfectly cooked dishes from his home in Italy and transforms them using local products when available. So delicate and nuanced are his flavors but rich and well developed... More

We ordered a plate with lamb and pasta, another with salmon and one with Italian sausage. All three were delicious. The wine was extraordinaire. The chef sent out a little treat before dinner and wow. It was awesome. It's pricey but worth it.

Chef Alberto is simply a genius at work. Very creative and always using fresh ingredients. Never see the menu. Always ask Mari or him to surprise me. They always do. This is a secret dining gem loved by locals so always reserve beforehand.
