What a wonderful meal! The service was great, but the food stood alone. Great appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Our table shared the Trofie, Ippoglosso, and Capensante. The scallops were the best I have ever had! They were cooked to perfection.

Great food, fantastic service. Generous portions. I would recommend this restaurant. We skipped dessert, but they brought a little treat at the end of the meal that was so amazing that would go back just for that!
