Its been some time since my last visit to this restaurant, and I was surprised at some of the changes. To start with, they have combined the retail side ( selling olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and wines) with the restaurant, which now includes a wine...More

Quick date night out. Wonderful service although busy. Interesting wine selections. Knowledgeable bartender Ana was friendly without being intrusive. The food was delightful including truffle fries and ziti al forno. We will go again and highly recommend this place for date night or groups!

My parents love this place, I personally don't understand. Servings are small and the food is odd in my opinion. The server was friendly but not very good. I will say the establishment had a good atmosphere. I'm sure my folks will drag us back...More

We enjoyed our lunch and our waiter provided us with excellent service. However, when we tried to pay with a gift certificate that I had purchased from this establishment, we were told it didn't apply to the restaurant only the store. When the waiter discussed...More

Have ordered cheese boards twice an the experience is similar to wine regions in CA (showing how forward-thinking the owners are in this delightful creation). Wine flights with cheese pairings are a fun way to spend cocktail hours. Will return for dessert.

Came on a Friday night and it was surprisingly not overly busy. We were seated promptly and each ordered a glass of wine. Unfortunately for me, the way the wine prices are unclear and somehow I ended up having 2 glasses of $11.50 wine... Wish...More
