Had a wonderful lunch with co-workers. The butternut squash soup was delicious and our entree salads were also well prepared. Service was excellent. Look forward to a return visit.

I took a co-worker here for lunch today. We chose to avail ourselves of the (very reasonable pricing) option of cup of soup and half-pasta combination. Today's soup was a sumptuous butternut squash soup. We both loved it. It was also beautiful to look at. The focaccia bread they serve is wonderful. My pasta was a gnocchi which I enjoyed.... More

Dined here for a special occasion, service was impeccable, food was a delight and the atmosphere tide it all up for one perfect evening. Ps: bought the pumpkin pie and although a bit pricey it was well worth it.

The meals are good, i.e. not bad. It's italian cuisine, but nothing spectacular. The restaurant is quiet, good for business meetings. And the setting is nice, white tablecloth and windows all over the place.

My partner and I attended lunch on Sunday November 27. The design and layout are spacious and elegant---high sceilings, tall mirrors, booths in trellices boxes, sweeping windows. My friend ordered a series of sides wich are very economical---eggs, bacon and delightfully fried potatoes n cheese which were extremely light and flavorful. I had the Seafood Frittata, which was spicy and... More

This is a very high end italian seafood restaurant. The food was absolutely fabulous, although I thought the portion size of my Branzino (sea bass) was a bit on the meager side. Lots of creative dishes with something to satisfy every taste, Even my nephew who eschews anything served on the bone was happy. Service was another story. The wait... More

The food in here is pretty good, and that alone is something of a surprise in this primarily student town. The decor is also pretty nice, prices relatively low and a really good range of options. Came back here the day after!
