Service at this place is second to none and compensated for the quality of the food. If yearning for pasta this would be the place for al dente pasta. Not very authentic, pretty average.

This is the 2nd time we have been here. Previously about 6 years ago. Still fantastic food, wine, service, atmosphere. This is the real deal without being in Italy propa.
