One of our favorite Italian restaurants. Consistently excellent food. My wife is part Italian and she confirms that the dishes offered are authentic. The wait staff is attentive and very friendly! Perhaps a bit pricey for some budgets, but we don't go there every day....More

The food here was very good but a little expensive. Also, the wine was very expensive. I would expect that they would have some decent bottles of wine under $30.

The ristorante is quaint and small. Our water was on the table when we arrived - lemon added. We started with the buratta and heirloom tomato appetizer which was excellent. Although there were hundreds of bottles of wines on display throughout - the menu was...More

Our third trip to this wonderful spot confirmed its excellence. Base sauces and stocks are given lots of love and the hours needed to build depth of flavors and it shows in the luscious Minestrone and Tuscan Bean soups as well as in the base...More

I was there with just my wife and didn't consider a large group setting. It'd be best to simply call them and ask. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful
