The food was good but not great; however, the atmosphere and service were quite good and made for a nice dinner with friends. I would go there again, but it wouldn’t be at the top of my list.

Decent all the way around. Food, service and atmosphere were exceptional. In addition, the prices were not bad compared to similar restaurants. Overall, a good value and a restaurant I would frequent again if in the mood for Italian cuisine.

No. Lunch crowd from offices nearby tends to dress business or business casual. On weekends and evenings, it’s usually more casual.
