We knew nothing about this restaurant before going in. The food is simply stunning - so tasty. The service too was excellent. We haven't had Italian food that good outside of Italy.

On principle I would never go to this restaurant again. We arrived and it was almost empty. We wanted to sit near the entrance in front of the window, but instead we were shown a table in cramped corner with an overhanding ceiling and also told we could sit at the end of a long table. We were told we could not sit at the front because they would put the chairs from outside there. By the time we had left there were only a couple of folded chairs by that table; these chairs could have been put anywhere else in the restaurant. I felt as if we were errant school kids. This is not the way to treat customers if you want them to come back! There are so many good restaurants in this area that one does not need to go to this restaurant: the proprietors are not thinking! The good was good, which normally would be the most important thing, but not on this occasion.

well would be if I was Italian. The food is great though and the service is smart. Eat slow, eat fast they cater to your needs.

I spent last night here and enjoyed the meal immensely
Ordering the veal marsala which was cooked to perfection.
It was a busy evening but they seated me and had entree and wine on table within 5 minutes
The restaurant is conveniently located, has a good ambience and is run efficiently.
I would definitely return.

This isn't a huge restaurant size-wise, and it's always very busy, which is a good thing because it means other people must love it too! The flavours of their food are just something else!
