I loved my meal here, but most of all I felt so relaxed in the restaurant itself. It's very beautiful, right on Fountain Square, you almost feel like you're in the trees. Pizza was delicious, as were the artichokes. Service was fantastic.

Visited on the recommendation of our concierge. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Our pasta entrees were superb. The veal meatball antipasta was disappointing. Good wine list.
