Lanfini’s NEVER disappoints. It is a local’s favorite that features northern Italian dishes. The food is consistently fabulous. Yes, it is a little pricey, but well worth it. Reservations recommended on weekends and holidays; great bar and ambiance too.

Our waiter was extremely professional and knowledgeable on the menu. His wine knowledge could have been better for working in a restaurant known for its wine menu. They served a party of 10 in a private room which allowed for personal conversation and bonding. Definitely...More
