This is a very well run, classy restaurant that focuses on Italian food. The staff was very professional, the ambiance is subdued and with all the people there we could hold a conversation without having to shout.

Always consistent. Great go to restaurant with solid service, never pretentious. Very comfortable when meeting friends after work, or a date with my man. If you have never liked brusselsprouts this place changed my mind.

This Italian restaurant is conveniently located in the downtown area walking distance from the hotels. It was full house on Monday night testifying to its popularity. Food was ok, service excellent but the menu drinks only acceptable. I can’t really recommend it …
