Food and service were very good. Atmosphere was so-so. We were a group of six seated adjacent to the bar and right in front of the cappuccino maker which was in constant use- very noisy and irritating!

The veal dinner (see photo) was absolutely amazing! Thin, creamy and delicious. Comes with small salad and a penne vodka side. The stuffed mushrooms appetizer was really good!

Very good food with a diverse menu featuring chicken, pasta, beef, seafood and pizza. Fresh greens in the salad and the swordfish picatta was very good.

We eat here about once a month for team building lunches. Atmosphere is excellent, quiet enough to be able to talk, not too loud... Food is always awesome, service way better than most places these days... Very attentive. We will continue to eat here.

For larger parties reservations are a good idea. Dress code...nothing specified but I would think appropriate attire such as shoes (no barefeet), and shirts.
