Still dreaming about the red onion and goat cheese bruschetta. It was that good! Pasta was fresh and perfectly cooked. The service was good without being cloying. Had been there once before and it didn't disappoint the second time. I doubt it ever will.

If you want Italian with a modern twist that will blow your mind this is he place to go. Whatever you do make sure you get the soft egg and lobster bruschetta.

Delicious Italian food and great service! The gnocchi is amazing as was the lamb meatball pasta. We also had a lovely cheesecake for dessert and a great bottle of Italian wine. We'll go back!

The benchmark. I can't say enough about their dishes. The charcuterie plate is great and their pastas are unbelievable. My favorite is the PASTA NEGRA w/ SEA URCHIN CHILI, MUSSELS & TOMATO. Yes, it does get loud. If you don't make a reservation, it can...More

Bar La Gassa used to be my favorite restaurant in the city. Unfortunately I can't say that anymore. Aside from it being so loud you can hardly hear the person sitting across from you, the food seems like it has gone down in quality significantly....More

Sorry I am not sure either hopefully they do as you won't be disappointed
Do you have nice linens on the tables and are they set so that conversation can occur? do you have good wines/vodkas? do you do something special ---like a baby cake or something to acknowledge his birthday?
