A beautiful (small) space with the best Italian offerings and wine pairing menu. The portion size ~ perfect, so you can and should indulge in their amazing desserts and coffee.

They have the best pasta and ravioli in this area. All the pasta are hand/home made by the Chef Baroncini, who also communicates with customers personally at the table. I highly recommend this place.

For $10 each, pasta marinara and pork slices on roasted potatoes, just delicious and beautifully presented. The friendly chef asks for feedback and one of the quietest places for lunch...very renewing all around.

Went here with my parents when they came to visit. The service is always great. The food was obviously homemade. The ravioli melted in your mouth. The pork shank-beautiful. Homemade sausage appetizer-great. Dessert was delisious. I like how the portions are ginormous so you can't enjoy all the courses, and wine! While it is a place for 'an occassion'. I can't wait to go back!

This is a very cozy restaurant...if you want to eat dinner there, it's best to have a reservation. The food is excellent and Chef Baroncini is clearly passionate about his restaurant. If you love authentic Italian and are ready for melt-in-your-mouth, then this it's well worth the cost! A great romantic restaurant.
