Closest thing to an authentic Italian experience I have been able to find state side. I have yet to try a single dish that wasn't fantastic. I recommend the wild boar as it's difficult to find elsewhere. The atmosphere is cozy and intimate. The staff is attentive and friendly. If you're lucky Tony may be performing, providing music that enhances... More

The food was excellent. This was a fine dining establishment but the cost is way too expensive. Would not return.

I took some good clients there for dinner because I had heard it was fantastic. And it was. On weekend nights better make reservations early because it is in demand. Be ready to pay $30 for an appetizer because the place is not cheap, but the food is great and the service is too. It is very cozy as you... More

The warm welcome set the tone of what to expect. The place is small but cosy and the tables are placed to provide privacy. Excellent for an intimate dinner. The service was good. The person serving us was kind to repeat the specials many times when asked. The food was fantastic especially the pasta with lobster tail. Well balanced and... More

If I could give this restaurant a higher rating, I would. I've been here numerous times over the past couples months and have nothing but good things to say. The food is authentic and some of the best Italian I've ever experienced. It truly reminded me of my time with my wife that we spent in Italy. If you ever... More

An absolute Italian palate delight. The food is prepared fresh on the premises, novel, efficient servers, and fantastic desserts. Be sure to make reservations and know that your reservation is 1 hour & 45 minutes. We were asked to leave when we surpassed our time allotment. I still had wine in my glass, cannoli in my plate and mouth.

You must get reservations it is a small intimate restaurant ... I would highly recommend for couples or a small group of friends. It is not a place of children. The food and service were top notch. We went on a Sunday and had reservations, the owner does not work on Sunday's so we did not get a chance to... More

This Italian restaurant came highly recommended to us so we finally made reservations. Reservations are a must as this restaurant is very intimate (small). The food and ambience was nothing short of amazing. My husband rated it in his top 5 meals together! We started with a Caesar which I would recommend skipping in favor of some of their many... More
