Have eaten here twice now, and was impressed both times. The setting is lovely, very intimate and classy. The menu is quite broad and varied for such a small restaurant, with all the northern Italian specialties you'd want, and quite an extensive wine list. The...More

Food here is excelent!!!!!! I have eaten at several Star rated restaurants in different countries, and let me tell you: this is a real Italian Home Cooking experience. It feels you are eating at a house somewhere in Italy with Grandma cooking!

Highlights include the incredibly attentive service, the extensive winelist including several more unusual bottles (at least for Lima), and, of course, the amazing food.

I had a wonderful dinner recently at Symposium and it’s on my list of restaurants to return to when I get a chance. Our table wasn’t quite ready when we arrived, but the hostess seated us at the bar while we waited. The restaurant itself...More

The positive: there are some menu options that are delicious. The negative: portions are minuscule and getting smaller. The owner believes high cuisine is spoon size servings. And the quality of the food is obvious but is ruined when it is slow to come and...More
