We were expecting much more. They need to get with the times and offer a lunch special. Soup was "just fine" we expected better. Waitress while pleasant enough was not very attentive. Food was good, but not exceptional. Don't think we will go back. The...More

Wonderful food and service. Our Group took the whole restaurant for an evening - strongly recommend the lamb and the veal Parmesan. The tartuffo dessert also excellent.
