I had a family dinner here the other day. Oysters, as well as other seafood appetizers, a fried, breaded Veal chop with a very fine beer, followed by the best Adffogato dessert I had ever had. Stunningly good quality, generic but pleasant atmosphere. Pricey, to put it mildly.

Had the 4 pc prix fixe meal, was delicious! Good selections, wait staff was wonderful. A bit too loud and it took a bit too long but the food made up for it!

I had the corn soup which was delicious and an angus burger. The service is a bit slow but the food is very good. I would recommend this to others. Nice bar too for an evening drink.

I really enjoyed my dinner. The atmosphere is very chic and yet very friendly. My food was delicious and the service was just right. I had a nice salad and then a special mussel dish (appetizer size) that was fantastic. It was just the right amount of food to get two appetizers.

First visit. Met with friends. I was early, friendly bar staff, interesting concoctions. Sharp, clean modern space. Great menu items, nice wine list. Knowledgable sommelier. Had carpaccio appetizer, excellent. The sommelier, maitre d recommended the controfileto, it was an excellent recommendation. Great service, excellent fare, mid price. Loved it.

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 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...
