So that was very nice. We were initially looking for a quick bite nearby, but that place was fully booked. However, the weather was nice and warm(!), so we took one of the tables outside the restaurant. And the food was just lovely. The restaurant...More

First of all, you need a reservation. Very nice and courteuos service. Good wine list and full bar service. Outside tables (smoking area) and main dinning room inside (non-smoking). The food is just excellent. Even their balsamic vineger is high quality. Their only weak point...More

The four of us had a late dinner in the dining room that was once a parlor - with a fireplace - and it was a beautiful Italian setting. We were surrounded by locals so we felt that this was a good sign! I had...More

I dunno - maybe it’s the warehouse feel - but the vibe here seemed disingenuous? Don’t get me wrong - the service was very nice, the bread actually fantastic, parmesan risotto incredibly rich and the tagliatelle with rabbit ragu tasty - but nothing was great...More

We've had dinner in the past and it was excellent. This visit was disappointing. Waiter was condescending and service was barely okay. The chef may have had an off day, because the food to was just okay. I'd recommend other ristorantes for a special meal.

Visited at 7:30pm on a Sunday with my wife and two girls (5/7y.o.). Sat inside in a formal-seeming dining room, but although the place serves wonderful food with service to match we never felt unwelcome with our kids (who admittedly behaved like angels). Waitress efficient...More
