It is only natural that if you go to a restaurant that has a particular dish as part of its name you would expect that dish to be the restaurant's specialty. So you try the pizza at Tony's Pizzeria, the oysters at the Otto's Oyster...More

I love risotto and had been looking forward to trying this restaurant out for a long time, figuring their namesake risotto would be good. I was lucky to attend a holiday party. In advance of arriving, we ordered from 5 dishes off the menu, to...More

My wife and I stopped in, for dinner, after work. We love to find new places, far from the usual chain restaurants. We enjoyed our visit.

My first impression at the bar turned us off. We arrived early for our reservation and sat at the bar for a drink. The bar was not crowded but we were totally ignored by the bartender. We were invisible as I watched her wait on...More
