They open @ 4:30pm, but main dining area doesn’t start service until 5:30pm. Food was good. Would definitely stop here again when in the area.

Pretty much always available for a nice, easy dinner with consistently good food, fun conversational service, killer olive oil, especially the just pressed oil that you cannot stop dining your bread in.

Sophisticated atmosphere, interesting menu offerings, delicious food! Although our waiter was a bit pretentious and had too many table to work, service was good. We found this place at the suggestion of our hotel, and were very pleased. Recommended!
