We ate here recently with our friends. My wife and I had been there before but not our guests we had the Sea Bass with Pesto, Grilled Salmon, Tortiglioni, and Linguini di Mare. All four were keepers. All were pleased. We'll all likely return.

Ate at the bar and service from Jason was excellent. Crab cakes had a unique taste and were barely done. Potatoes with the tuna were dry and not the right consistency. The other dishes were very good.

Excellent Italian flavors, fun atmosphere, and great staff. The house-made ravioli combined flavors of ricotta cheese, spinach, and a fresh tomato sauce, topped with parmesan. Creme brulee was done right, and absolutely delicious. Prices are a step above Olive Garden, but flavors are many more...More

This restaurant gets many things very right. Its huge, but manages to keep early evening bar and chatter groups in their own setting, and does a great job of elegant seating in various dining rooms with nooks and corner booths. As a result, conversation is...More
