This is definitely a special occasion restaurant when you want to impress! This has wonderful Italian dishes that you don't normally find in a "regular" Italian Restaurant. If you like wines, this is also a place for trying out some. They have two salads to...More

The food is great and portions are plentiful. The tomato sauce is a bit on the sweet side for me but compliments the pastas gracefully. I like the pick-a-pasta option, but primo options are very pricey for Italian cuisine. The building is historical but lacks...More

This is one of our favorite restaurants on the Independence Square for lunch. The service is usually fast, and the food is good.

Yes, there is an upstairs level that should fit your needs. I highly recommend calling the restaurant to confirm.
