The food is really, really good, good quality ingredients, well prepared and served with pride. The menu has items that you won't see in other restaurants in the area, let alone Italian restaurants. The prices are a little high, depending on what you order but this is not your typical spaghetti and pizza restaurant. We had the elk with tartufo... More

Had a lovely dinner here with friends (for a friend's birthday). I had the special imported Burrata app and the wild boar ragout pasta - both were delicious. Everyone in our party of 5 enjoyed their meal - especially those who had the special bone-in veal chop parmiagiana.

The entree' of ravioli stuffed with real riggotta and black truffles in truffle sauce was amazing. We also had linguini frutti di mare, and finished both plates. The atmosphere was warm and inviting,and the staff... More

My mother, husband and I were seated at an intimate corner table. The atmosphere was superb and my mother wouldn't stop mentioning how the decor reminded her of a childhood trip to Italy. We were greeted with a warm welcome from Marco, a fabulously attentive but non-hovering waiter. Chef Nino has a true gift for cuisine; the food was all... More

The food and service were phenomenal. The restaurant was very charming and the ambiance was delightful. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They were able to accommodate us without a reservation. I only regret not having room for dessert.
