I went as part of a group of 8, and we needed to get to know each other and have some solid business discussions. Table was set up in a tight square (far better for conversation than a long narrow setup), slightly off the main dining room. Waiter was very attentive, and creative in helping all decide. He pulled together a medly of apps for the table, served family style, that were excellent.

Main courses were excellent, pastas in particular went over very well. Wine list was limited, but had sufficient choices. The bar itself was big, with lots of regulars happily eating at the bar.

Ambiance was nice - high energy, but not too loud. Great location - easily walkable from Michigan in good weather, and a steady stream of cabs in the January cold.

Pricey but good food. Popular place as it was very very busy at dinner time. Access to hotel lobby, so no need to bundle up to go there.

Don't plan on calling down to the restaurant and getting food delivered to your room. They don't offer that, but you can come pick it up yourself. The food is good, service very good and prices in line with other Italian restaurants in the area. The wait staff are attentive and we never felt rushed.

Positive: It was easy to get a last minute reservation on a Saturday evening. The portions were huge and the wait staff was okay with us sharing one of their huge entrees. They let us taste wine before we ordered. Warm bread and yummy Parmesan ladled olive oil. Tasty Ceasar salad. Wait staff very nice.
Negative: Very tight seating so you are right on top of your neighbors. (Make new friends.) We asked if we could be seated at a table set for two on the end..and we were told no because they were waiting to use that in case a party of 3 showed and then they could add another table setting. This was annoying.
