You walk in past a spacious and attractive bar that is always filled with customers to a modern, attractive restaurant. It would be best to make reservations, as the food and service draws a crowd. The wait staff is attentive and very friendly. I had the beef carpaccio as an appetiser which was tasty, as was the salad garnish. For an entree I had the spaghetti carbonara served with a fried egg on top. It was well seasoned, the pasta cooked al dente and sauce very tasty. They have a decent wine selection and while I couldn't order dessert, they looked wonderful

I hosted a business dinner with six attendees. Now this restaurant is pricey, be forewarned, but the food is amazing. It is also really noisy so don't go here if you want to have an intimate talk with anyone. Go here if you want fabulous inventive food that will knock you socks off. Brace for the bill!

If you're looking for standard Americanized Italian, don't come here. But if you're looking for great food, HUGE wine selection, attentive service and lovey atmosphere then this is your place.

Small, well-appointed, modern restaurant in Rice Village. The food was outstanding and the service very professional. Extensive wine-list, heavily accented to Italian wines, as you would expect, but a disappointing lack of wines from the New World, esp. Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.
The restaurant is a little noisy, making conversation somewhat difficult, but honestly, I can't find anything to fault with this place.
