Wonderful veal and pasta dishes with many unusual dishes , generally robust. Allowed us to bring in a wine and no corkage when we bought one of theirs, too. Very busy with locals , so make a reservation well in advance.

We were really anticipating this restaurant based on the good reviews. We probably should have listened to our bartender at a nearby predinner drink, who advised us "the food is a B." we entered the restaurant and were seated promptly for our 9 o'clock reservation by a friendly host. The restaurant was packed and lively with a bubbling Miami vibe that was comfortable and upscale at the same time. The mussels were delicious and plump and fresh. After that, we had a jumbo shrimp special and a mushroom pasta special. The shrimp were nice but served with tough and flavorless lentils. The pasta was homemade, but actually quite overlooked and the sauce lacked character with only microscopic mushroom pieces. We skipped dessert. The service was superb. Energetic, fun, fast, and friendly. A+ for experience, and sadly our bartender was right...B for food.

A delightful night with outstanding food and even better service. Be sure to make a reservation though because the night we were there it was crowded and we had a reservations. You will not be disappointed. A foodie will love this place. Taken here by a local who says it is his favorite restaurant!!

All of your needs will be anticipated and met by a delightful, friendly, tag-team waitstaff. Use a knife - it will magically be replaced. Need some more water? Already re-filled. We walked in on a Saturday night at 6:00 during the Wine and Food Festival WITHOUT a reservation. We were greeted with a smile and they said as long as we promised to be done by 7:30, we could stay. We split the fresh mozzarella with marinara, had the veal picatta that you could cut with a fork and to die for tiramisu - all desserts are made there. The owner/manager came and checked on us for each course. Unfortunately the credit card machine wasn't working and the manager was scrambling to get it fixed, but he did it the old-fashioned manual way and apologized profusely. No worries! I was in the Italian Lakes, Venice, Florence and Rome last summer and this was better than anything we had in Italy.
