My wife and I went there for a quiet dinner. The menu was slightly more varied than the standard Italian restaurant. The staff were very attentive and made great recommendations. Flavor was great.

This 4 course meal paired with 4 different wines was delicious and great value for $50 per person. The owner/chef came out after each course to talk to the guests and solicit feedback. Well worth a visit.
