This restaurant was recommended by the Hotel we were staying at. I would definitely make a reservation because it is a busy place. Food was very good and the service was excellent. Parking on the street was easy always a plus

We ate here for a. Business dinner with a large group - 30ish. They have room for groups that big, but it was tight. The food was pretty simple, but good Italian cuisine. Good selection of food options.

This is a cozy, high end restaurant. Enjoyed the home made gnocchi in a walnut gorgonzola sauce. Excellent service; definitely for more special occasions as the menu is pricey.

They do not sell gift certificates. That lowers the value of their establishment and causes their servers to let with lower tips.

One of the guests at our party needed gluten free and they were more than happy to accommodate them. I would suggest calling ahead to let them know of your special needs.
