My wife and I were looking for "Friday night pizza" and drove past Il Pianista. The white sign with a three-armed-man wasn't lit and it appeared to be closed so we moved on. The next day we were driving past and went in to see if they were in business and found it open with a scenic setting. Although the parking was limited, the menu looked excellent, so we returned that evening for dinner.
Doris; the hostess-owner-waitress, was a delight. Giovanni; owner-chef, knows his craft. The selection of dishes was excellent and the presentation and quality were top notch. There was a good selection of wines at reasonable prices and the entire meal was under $75.
We started with a bottle of Italian red wine and the clams in garlic & wine appetizer. A very generous garden salad was followed by our entrees, trout in tomatoes & mushrooms and beef tenderloins in a green (capers) cheese sauce. All was excellent.
Although we didn't get back to try the pizza, the wood fired stone pizza oven offered promise of great pizzas too.
Worth looking into and we'd recommend finding the restaurant during the daytime to make finding at night much easier. Enjoy!
