Been here twice recently. Cocktails are good-food is OK. Last night I paid the $57 for black truffle risotto. NOT WORTH IT! Not nearly enough truffle grated on top to flavor the whole dish. It was served from a parmesan wheel at the table, scraping the cheese off the wheel and mixing it with the risotto, which was a nice... More

Great place to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The guy who took our reservation was pleasant to talk to. The hostess was really friendly and accommodating. They gave us the choice to sit at the enotecca or main dining room. The latter was dark with TVs and an entertainer who comes in at 6:30pm. We opted for the main dining room.... More

I dine here with my girlfriends for special occasions, and the atmosphere is very old school Italian, and the service can't be beat.

Amazing and a must if you're in the area. New to this tripadvisor thing but I had to be sure I wrote a review about this wonderful spot. To think of my favorite would be hard. So I'd say come more then once and try everything. Love this place and please keep making amazing food.
