Dinner, just OK. They have done a great job on choosing and training their staff. You feel very comfortable throughout the meal. The main dishes we ordered lacked something; lacked seasoning but it was fresh. Gnocchi, Truffle fries and Ceasar Salad were great.

I had the chicken Parmesan with meat sauce and it was wonderful. The red sauce tasted like home made.

The food and service here are always consistently good. They try to source local foods for most of their dishes, I don't know about the pasta dishes but the salads are definitely local and fresh.

The Greek pasta dish was perfect and exceeded expectations. The wait service was attentive. Our meals came quickly even though there were many in the restaurant.
