My wife an I had pizza that was mediocre to bad—we have had much better frozen. Nice setting, nice young staff, pricey. There is a Japanese restaurant adjoining it and associated with it that is a better bet.

About this place, I have to say that the food is good and taste ok, but for me, they charge too much for what you get, if you ask for focaccia they'll charge you and the beverages are also expensive

My favorite Italian when I am at the Doubletree or City Express. Open restaurant with TVs for sports and news. Very good, albeit pricey food. Large portions. Nothing nuked. All orders are cooked after you place them. Nice waiters and waitresses. Good wine portfolio

Nice place to visit, good italian dishes, wine and music but is overpriced, at least the capresse salad. If budget is not an issue there is no problem at all.
