All the restaurants had long waits in Little Italy so we kept walking and a found this great restaurant. Cute and ambient. We ordered steaks and pasta and it all was amazing! Try this place.

Food, service and ambience were terrific. Couldn't do enough for you.
Went to the bar area after, we had been hearing a piano and a saxophone along with lyrics from our table. Thought there was perhaps a duo there. There was a one man band. He did it all and was on the money with all of it! He played the 3 saxes he had sitting on top of this lovely grand piano. I think his name was Rick Ross. Didn't leave until he was done playing!
The only thing that didn't jive, I asked for a B&B at the end of the meal to enjoy with my son in law. When the waiter came back, he said they had none. When we went into the bar, I spied a bottle of B&B on the very high top shelf. So we had our brandy after all but could only pour 2 glasses as there wasn't anymore. I do hope they replenish.

Loved this restaurant. Beautiful bar area with wonderful live music & great drinks. The waitstaff was attentive & friendly. Had swordfish fresh off the boat that morning. It was amazing & can't wait to go back & order it again. My husband had filet mignon & loved it. Dessert was Italian pastry, which was unbelievable. One of the best restaurants in Little Italy. You gotta try it.

Inside this restaurant takes you on a journey to memories of some of the great steak and Italian restaurants visited throughout USA. Warm greeting, nicely laid out, well dressed wait staff, buzzy atmosphere with relaxing live music. Add to that a well balanced menu and wine list, things are looking good. Service throughout was friendly and efficient, meals came in nice order and time, were as described, presented well and acceptable serve size. Both our stuffed chicken and roasted lamb chops were superb as was the side of asparagus. Only had appetite to share a wonderful panacotta. A most satisfactory dining experience (thank you Gary).

Great food, excellent service, great wine cellar, fantastic live music. If you're expecting a "bar and grille", you came to the wrong place. This is more "suit and tie" than "jeans and t-shirt".
