Beautiful place! The food is very good. The parking is okay- street parking. The neighborhood is not so great but it really is a beautiful place and the owner is fantastic.

One night my wife and I went out on our own for dinner after seeing it on Pine. The building is a cool 1920s setting with a great open feel. In addition to the setting, the night we visited, someone was singing opera at the tables. As for the food, my wife had a good chicken dish and I had... More

They serve a lasagne bolonese that is made with spinach that gives it a very unique flavor. The wait staff was extremely helpful and efficient. The wine list is extraordinary even though the prices were reasonable.

Friendly welcome from front of house but we were also greeted by a peculiar smell...but seeing the food awards it has won we decided to stay & were very glad we did. Carpaccio & squid starters were excellent, beautiful lamb & steaks & extensive wine list, albeit slightly over priced in places. Worth checking out, brilliant friendly & attentive service,... More
