I've now had four business dinners at this restaurant and I've to say they've all worked out perfectly. Food was superb, service was excellent bordering on slavish, it was quiet and exactly what was needed. I highly recommend it.

I often visit Cellini for business lunches. I've never had a problem getting a reservation or having that reservation honored immediately upon arrival. The food to tasty and comes out fast - so perfect for keeping a lunch meeting to under an hour.

Cellini’s culinary style of chic simplicity produces a menu of astounding freshness and creativity. We began with a masterful rendition of cornmeal polenta wedges with masses of slivered shitake mushrooms and a calamari salad garnished with beans and scallions, each set off with a hot, homemade foccacia, augmented with sliced crusty Tuscan bread. We next chose panzotti-supple half moon pasta filled with fresh, crisp vegetables lightly bathed in a delicate porcini mushroom sauce. A unique tubular pasta stuffed with the freshest fish and spinach under a seasoned fish stock was enough to show us that each dish here has its own personality, and is densely concentrated with flavor.
