Authentic, family-owned Italian. Very close to Marriott. Owners are on site. Great fresh selections with homemade pasta. Best gnocchi ever. Make reservations, and do not miss Ciao! Relax; great food takes time.

Doubt it. They have some decent wine at a good price. We drank some Chilean merlot for $26 a bootle. It was very drinkable.
