Food was excellent and our waiter was the absolute best, Rocco. My husband, brother and step mother went there for lunch and couldn't have had a nicer time. The hostess was also absolutely lovely and made us all feel at home. Upscale yet comfortable!

We sat at the bar and immediately noticed a foul smell coming from behind the bar. It was unpleasant to the point that we had to get up and leave to have a drink somewhere else.
