“Excellent cuisine and service. Overpriced and hence often empty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2010

This restaurant is owned and managed by an adorable Sardinian family. The restaurant is classy with fine crystal, silverware and plates. The atmosphere is pretty being in a former church with high ceilings. I adore their primi with excellent pasta. While most rave about the restaurant's seafood, it has been bland at times for me. Desserts are also exquisite. My only real complaint is that it is expensive and hence we rarely see many people in the restaurant. I would prefer the prices to drop a bit and have a more lively atmosphere.

“Good enough for Robert de Niro!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2009

One of the first things you see when you walk in is a picture of Robert de Niro playing with one of the owner's daughters, so at least he likes the place. The restaurant is run by 3 sisters, one of whom is the cook, and they have quite a nice setup.

Everybody else seemed to really like the food, but I had some minor reservations. The stuffed ravioli was a little tasteless and the lobster was a little overdone, unforgivable in a top restaurant. However< I guess I'm being girlish and picky about it as everything else was really very nice. The decor was quite imaginative, dramatic and fun in some ways - glitzy even, but without too much kitch.
