Our second time, and it only gets better. We started with Figs, Watermelon and feta. Moving on to spinach salad, then a fantastic Caesar Pizza. Melissa, our server suggested a night cap on the back patio. There is a lovely fire place, romanic surroundings, and top it off with an Espresso Martini. The servers are very attentive, to the point... More

We recently visited friends in Eau Claire, WI and went to dinner at this restaurant. What a great experience. The restaurant has a very nice environment and decor, the service was very good -- our server was attentive but not overly so, and the food was excellent. We went on a Saturday night and the restaurant was busy but we... More

Great service, great food, beautiful environment. My niece and I dined here on Saturday night and we shared! Shared the date appetizer, excellent, tomato salad with Buratta cheese, fabulous and the gnochi and it was good, but almost a little too much butter. We also had the chocolate torte which was also very good.

We were very disappointed in the greeting when we arrived. The hostess was texting and totally ignored us and when we asked for a table for four she acted like we were bothering her and were told they would have to rearrange their tables. We were told to just to to the bar and wait. There was no communication on... More

The bartenders and server were great but hostess was rude and acted as if we were bothering her by coming in without a reservation even though we called and were told they held tables for walk ins. Food was good but nothing to rave about.

I expected to love this place based on reviews and my love for Italian food in general, but I was underwhelmed. The food was tasty enough, but not outstanding, and I found only one or two items on the menu that I was interested in trying. If this was the best restaurant in Eau Claire, then I'd recommend eating in... More

I hate to leave bad reviews - especially since I didn't even get to eat here. I tried to make reservations for a large group of 20-25 people. I went to their website and emailed the person in charge of booking the private room. She did email me back with a time to call her, but when I did it... More

My husband and I had read great reviews about this restaurant so decided to stop late one night as we were passing through Eau Claire. We were pleasantly surprised at the diverse and interesting menu. There is something for everyone! Our server, Micah, was most attentive and made the dinner that much more pleasant. I was thrilled with my beet... More

A quaint restaurant with good service and great food. They have original dishes and an extensive wine list. You can't go wrong here.
