This is an Italian restaurant that you can always count on to be good. Great service and very good food. Nice wine list and home made limoncello. Veal dishes are especially good and the baked shrimp is delicious.

We needed a place to eat after traveling all day. Happened upon this place. The ambiance was very nice and cozy and the wait staff was attentive and helpful. The food was very, very good. Entertainment for the palate. It's not cheap, but worth it.

I was there with just my wife and didn't consider a large group setting. It'd be best to simply call them and ask. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful
