From the moment we sat down, the service was impeccable. Glasses of ice water and a basket of some of the most delicious homemade bread appeared in the blink of an eye. Friendly waitstaff. Beautiful and relaxing environs. Outdoors, the setting is romantic and private. Bug spray is available if you'd like it. The Osso Bucco was cooked to perfection... More
