Reminiscent of a Tuscan farmhouse, this restauran serves authentic Italian fare. The service is outstanding, attentive but not overwhelming. Owner circulates to make sure everything is good while making sure that every utensil, gall, etc. is properly placed.

I have been coming to Il CenaColo for at least 20 years, almost annually. I think it is the best and most authentic Italian restaurant I've eaten in the US. It is not cheap and it is not a pizza joint. It has an extensive...More
