Have been here 5-6 times due to proximity of my office. The food isn't bad, but it is not memorable in a way. I can't think of a dish I was ever impressed by here. Service can also be fairly indifferent at times. All this would be OK if the place didn't present itself and price itself as a fine Italian restaurant. I've always left here feeling overcharged for the quality of the food and dining experience.

I've been eating there for over 20 years. It's not a terribly fancy restaurant, but the food is very very good.

Fantastic Service and a really good menu. I've been there 3 times and everything is delicious. Nice place. I've always been for work but I'm guessing it's romantic at night.

Terrible. Just terrible. Had a reservation, and still waited a full hour to be seated and then another 45 minutes before our order was taken -- and after all of that, it was still some of the worst food any of us has had in years -- bland, tasteless fish, inedible pasta, etc.
