This was the fifth restaurant we visited this week and the best by far. Alex, our server, Alessio, the chef, and the entire wait staff made sure we had a great experience, from quick service to delicious food. If you visit early on a weekday, Alessio will tailor your request to fit your cravings. (I wanted pesto, which wasn't on the menu, and ended up with a delicious chicken pesto dish!) All the other people in our party agreed that their choices were their favorites of the week as well.

The location (across from the mall) is unassuming, which is great because then we concentrated on the food and wine.

This place just opened and I have no doubt it will soon be a place people come back to again and again. We certainly will.

The food was incredible from the appetizers (caprese and calamari) to the amazing entrees ( special of the night chicken with mozzarella and mushrooms in a wine sauce; gnocchi---best I've had since my Nona's!--and chicken pesto. Chocolate shots and beignets...this was the BEST!!!!! Would highly recommend this delicious find.
