Ihad guests visiting from the USA on business. I ordered Veal Marsala (which is for some reason no longer on the menu but they are happy to prepare and serve it). One guest enjoyed a Chicken Abruzzo specialty dish with pepper sauce and mushrooms. The other had Veal Saltimboca. The veal here is the highest quality I have ever tasted... More

The food was wonderful & there was enough on our plates for leftovers. The restaurant is cozy & classy and waiter was so freindly & helpful. We... More

If you don't give Lorenzo and Joe a chance you have done yourself a disservice. We had lunch that included a caprese salad and the lobster ravioli with shrimp. Both were superb. Will be going back for supper soon and you should too. Try the prosecco with Aperol to warm the palette to start.

Wine list was adequate, altho did not see a Rose! Caesar salad was very fresh and tasty. Italian house salad also tasty. Carbonara--very good. Cannelloni--excellent. Bolegnese --full flavours. All were appetizer sizes, filling and well priced.... More

As long as you will be able to ignore the staff you really can have a great Italian food experience. We enjoyed our starters, really had a great main course, and even an impressive desert, but the waitress almost spoiled our evening.

The food is usually quite good, but the staff is unwelcoming and rude. The hostess can barely smile and the servers are unwelcoming and not very pleasant - especially considering how often we eat there due to its proximity to the office.
