I came here for private event last week and the service was exceptional! Usually when you have a private event, they only give you one or two waiters and the service isn't that great. I felt at this place we were waited on hand and foot. They brought out a sampler of the appetizers that everyone in the group went to town on. I would highly recommend their grilled oysters and mussels!
Also, they have an extensive menu to choose from and the portions like most Italian restaurants are huge and I doubt that most people can finish them. The dessert was also great.
Bottom line is that this is a great place for dinner, and if you are looking for a venue for a private event, I highly recommend this place.
