Flew solo tonight and craved Italian. Great ambiance. Food was amazing. Portions are a bit small, but I'll take quality over quantity.

Really enjoyed the wonderful food, service and little extra touches such as lace doilies under the liqueurs, home-made breadsticks, general attention to detail. Great staff with multi-lingual skills. Will definitely return
