We picked this place on a whim and were blown away. The service, the drinks and the food were off the charts. Big highlights were the ricotta toast and the pork shank. We will make an effort to come back.

I had the cavatelli with brown butter and sage and it was amazing. We are down in the bar area which was nice and cozy and the bartender very attentive. Overall great experience.

I had been to Decca a couple of times before and had an excellent experience, both in terms of "vibe" and meal. They've still got the "vibe" covered, the service was very attentive and professional, and the cocktails were delicious. However, one of our two...More

Menu is put together very well. Food was tasty and my salmon was cooked perfectly. Thursday’s they have half price bottles of wine. I was disappointed they didn’t acknowledge it was my birthday when I mentioned it on the reservation.

Really a neat place. Very nice outdoor dining in courtyard and very cool basement bar. Mussels were excellent. I would go back for sure.

This was exactly the place for a fine-dining, first Louisville visit, evening of cocktails, wine and excellent food. The service was attentive but allowed for complete customer attention on our own senses. Taste and texture of each dish: akin to the best restaurants I've experienced...More
