This restaurant was outstanding. I had heard good things and it did not disappoint. I had the Pappardelle Di Funghi e Madeira and the smaller portion was plenty for me, plus I had a salad. The food is amazing and I would definitely recommend it. Others in my group had the Grouper and they too said that was amazing. We... More

Limited menu without the traditional Italian Red sauces but all in all it was quite good. The pappardelle pasta dish was very good- chicken entree was excellent as was the pork saltimbocca. The pasta can be ordered in 1/2 portions. The Zeppalla desert very good but enough for 4. Service excellent but good delivery slow.

Sometimes it is all about expectations. We sat at the Chefs table and enjoyed a pleasant meal. The entree that was described as a "family recipe" was disappointing, but was likely do to the high expectations we had hearing about its preparation. House salad was unique and outstanding. Went back the next night and enjoyed an outstanding entree.

Let's begin with the positives: food was good, service attentive, a nice wine list. The negatives, other than the fact it is stupid expensive, include not having salt and pepper readily available on the table (yes, I trust chef's seasoning for the most part and would still like to have the option of putting salt and pepper in the olive...
