Superbly prepared Northern Italian cruise accompanied by an outstanding wine selection. For an appetizer try the Stracciatella Alla Romana soup, which you won’t find anywhere else. For dinner, the veal chop is excellent. The real prize is their Wild Boar. Wonderful service by Frank, his...More

Superior Northern Italian food and delightful atmosphere. We loved the wine cellar room. Unsurpassed service. Best Italian food in Upstate NY and equal to the finest we have had in the US. My congratulations to the owners. The music was solely the Chairnan of the...More

Went for dinner with friends. As always everything was great. Frank is a great host, his daughter made us feel at home with the service. Nice wine list and excellent pasta dishes. I had the trout special, it was perfect. Will be back soon.

Don't expect everything being advertised or the special being mentioned to be available. The special was not available even though it was announced. Waiter was efficient but lacked courteous behavior. Owner was uncommunicative and obnoxious.

I always forget about this restaurant but am always delighted after I go. The food is excellent and consistently good. Varied and reasonable wine list and fantastic service. The boar is excellent and the homemade pastas sublime. One of the best in Buffalo

We had a wonderful dinner and the service was outstanding. The owner was extremely friendly and took care of us from the second we walked in the restaurant. I always rate restaurants from a consistency perspective. If a restaurant has excellent service in multiple visits,...More

Small, well appointed, local restaurant. Clean, beautiful, and tastefully decorated. We went on a Thursday evening and they were fairly busy. However, we still waited a little too long to be waited on and served. But the food more than made up for any small...More

Food was not as good as previous visits but still above average. Service was not as attentive as you might expect at these menu price points. Wine selection was excellent and modest cork fee allows you to bring your own bottle
