I had chicken and eggplant parm.. Just great! Good service and great young man valet parking! My husband had broiled chicken and said that was bland though.

Had reservations and had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. The place was seki-controlled chaos. Reception area is oddly placed in the middle of the restaurant which means that food is flying by while people are waiting in reception area. I witnessed a couple of close calls where platters of food were almost dumped on customers. After we got... More

Had the Veal Amaretto special for the 3rd time and it is still the best. Tried to duplicate it last night - came close, but not quite. Cannot wait to go back. My husband had the small plate steak special cooked very rare - as he likes it. Homemade pappardelle is awesome too.

We went with a group of 8 people. I received my meal (like warm) after most people had eaten at least half of theirs I didn't send it back because it took so long. One person asked for a refill on her coke which did not come. One person ordered coffee with dessert. The coffee finally came after everyone was... More

Just came back from a business dinner. Sort of cool and fun atmosphere and helped creative juice flowing for business ideas. Good seafood and steak dinners.

First, the staff and owners were sooooo friendly which always seems to make the food taste even better. And then the quiet piano music, lighting and mood of the place was fantastic. The piano was a nice background but also quiet enough that people didn't have to talk over it to be heard. And then the food! They are game... More

We arrived about 10 minutes late, when the owner told us they were closed at 7. When we let him know that we had a reservation, he... More
