Our new favorite restaurant in Baltimore thanks to Virginia, our co-host(ess) and waitress. Not being too hungry, we shared several dishes and the first was a whole Branzino Mediterranean sea bass. She made us feel like we were her favorite customers of the evening, we new that was impossible but it felt good! Virginia recommended a 2011 Massone Massera Gavi to accompany the fish and it had excellent minerality and acidity. We shared a veal dish with a reduction sauce next and we again left the red wine choice to Virginia. Best thing we have found, so far, in Baltimore.

Then dessert and then... complimentary orangecello to follow. A first time for us with this drink: we make our own limoncello and they had the orange equivalent just right.

Nice décor, everyone very pleasant.

My wife and I went to this restaurant with another couple and had a fantastic evening. We each started with an appetizer which were all delicious and imaginatively created. The service was excellent without feeling smothered. Our entrees were each wonderfully prepared and beautifully presented. We choose two excellent Italian wines from the list and rounded out the meal with fabulous desserts. We will definitely be going back. It is well worth the hour and a half drive from our house.

We found this delightful gem by accident...now we return every year when on business in Baltimore. We find it to be one of the finest dining experiences and we look forward to the next visit even though we live hours away. This week we decided to travel there on a whim for a special event dinner for two, and they were happy to accommodate us, and even went out of there way to make our evening the best we could have wished for. Our appetizers, wine and dinners superb, and the service beyond compare.
