I had never eaten downstairs and was concerned it might feel like a basement. On the contrary, it was absolutely beautiful..like a winter wonderland. Floor to ceiling glass, snow outside surrounding us, and the lights on the trees were lit. Halibut and Salmon enters were cooked perfectly. We were happy with the appetizers and desserts. Definitely will be back.

Good place for a business dinner. A range of Italian food whether you like pasta, pesce or carni. They have reasonable range of beers and wine too. Ambience and service also good.

Good food, awesome service. The food was great but the portions were small for what was charged. I would definitely return. This restaurant definitely has a high end atmosphere.

The dinner was good. No question. However the last time we went I told people how good it was and made a point to bring friends with me for a housewarming celebration. It was disappointingly above average but nowhere near what I had built it up to be. Didn't mind the prices but left a little bit let down. Get... More

Service was impeccable, food was delicious and we had such a nice birthday celebration for my husband. The wine list was extensive and lots of attention to detail. My only complaint is that we passing through on our way to Boston and I may not get back to enjoy another dinner!
