“Great service...below average food”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

What a lovely restaurant. What great service.....but the food was below average. Went with 2 other people who know food. We ordered a salad and had to put more balsamic on it because it lacked taste. the bread tasted like it came from a Wonder Bread bakery (that was the first clue). I ordered the speghetti and meatballs. The sauce was decent and the pasta was cooked al dente but the meatball (1 the size of a softball) was tasteless and had gristle running through it. We had Osso Buco, it was dry as was the Chicken Parmesan. We loved the setting, but was very disappointed in the food.

“Nice place”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

This is an intimate Italian restaurant with a list of celebrity patrons lining the entry. The food was really good. I have eaten here several times - each time very nice.

“Unbelieveable”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

I eat a vegetarian diet and while the waiter was perplexed at first, he was very helpful in finding an amazing entree: Portabella Ravioli was unbelievable! The atmosphere is a wonderful relaxing marriage of Italian Baroque marries Italian Country. Service was speedy and attentive. Wine selection and temp was lovely. The only downside was out of their control: an adult daughter at another table who verbally terrorized her mother throughout the meal. However, the staff graciously relocated me to enjoy my meal.

“Just changed owners”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

They probably kept the same chef, so food should remain the same - extremely good!!!! This is a romantic restaurant.
