The classy atmosphere and attending staff was good enough for me. This place makes me feel like I am in NYC. The food sealed the deal. I had the Risotto and it was incredible. It melted in my mouth and then I got to the pine nuts; incredible! Go and eat here. You will be wowed!

... for the simple reason that my wife makes Italian food better than pretty much all and because I'm spoiled by trips to Italy. For those who have not been to Italy: What passes for Italian here ain't. This place was a pleasant surprise. It's beautiful inside, and the service is outshone by none. I had a primo (pasta) as...

Got the prixe fix brunch option ($24) for choice of fresh juice, pastry (on this day was fresh ricotta donuts with jelly on the side), and entree. We both had the lobster eggs benedict. Everything done to perfection - great service. Wonderful place to enjoy brunch.

One of less than a half dozen or so true fine dining experiences in New Brunswick. The decor is chic and modern. The service is attentive and knowledgable. The service staff operates as a team and really cover all the details well together. The food is a modernist interpretation of classic Italian dishes. The flavors are subtle and even handed....

My family and I were traveling through and looking for a spot for a nice Saturday evening dinner. We called last minute and they were able to give us a table by the bar.
