Nice, classy, and classic decor, but still relaxed, not stuffy. Had a delicious dry martini, ordered seafood tower and fried calamari to start—both great, fresh. Wife had branzino, I had surf and turf, kids had linguine with clams. Again, all delicious. Fish was grilled perfect...More

We sat at the bar and immediately noticed a foul smell coming from behind the bar. It was unpleasant to the point that we had to get up and leave to have a drink somewhere else.

The place is beautiful, and a great place to go for drinks and appetizers. To be honest though, not our first choice when looking for a dinner place. Menu is fairly unimaginative and limited. Not bad, just not great.

Really nice place for dinner. Great food, service, ambiance. Highly recommend. Parking can sometimes be tough, but not too much of a problem. We enjoyed this restaurant, as not too many like this close by.
