3 couples decided to go there for Valentine's day. One couple had gone there last year and said it was good. Well,, something happened to make this not very good. We all ordered a Caesar salad. It was the worse salad ever. None of the greens were, well, green. It was all the ends of the lettuce. Some slices of... More

The only thing we truly enjoyed was the bread service, caprese salad and wine. My husbands veal was bland and my mussels were not good.

We have eaten here in the past and it has been ok....never really been excited about it. This year we decided to give it another try and we are so happy we did. Our waiter, Marco was attentive and so polite. Our food was excellent. 2 of our friends had filets and they raved about them. The red snapper was... More

I found some of the staff to be surly and was kept waiting by the head waiter, until he could summon a flunky to seat us. Portions were small and pricy and not good enough to entice me back. Save your money.

I had heard good things about this restaurant and was eager to see for myself. Unfortunately I was underwhelmed. The food was very pricey; I ordered the cheapest thing on the menu which was eggplant parm for I think $18.00. The waitress informed me when I ordered that it didn't come with pasta. It also didn't come with any vegetables... More

We had a group of 12 people. Food was good and service was really quick. Authentic Italian staff. Pretty small portions for many of the choices, except for the Chicken Parmesan. A little pricey for the size.
