Dinner for two Thanksgiving evening. I had the Tataglia (Beef tenderloin in balsamic reduction $33) and my wife had Scallopine Parmegiana (veal parmesan $30) Our primary waiter was Alessandro who is particularly knowledgable on Italian wine. Juan also contributed to our evening's pleasure. Both are consummate professionals. Dinner was washed down with a 2012 Barolo by Barisolo. Just coming into... More

We had eaten here during our visit last year and were impressed. We returned this year and were definitely not disappointed! The food is excellent, portions plentiful, service professional and friendly, and prices are reasonable. Highly recommended.

Asti was recommended to us by hotel staff. The food was great. We had bruschetta with fresh tomatoes and feta, pasta with lump crab and shrimp and tiramisu for desert. All delicious. We sat outside on the small patio and people watched while eating. The service was fantastic as well. We'll definitely be back.

We had a large party (8) for dinner. Service was impeccable. Everyone had a different dish and everyone raved about their food. I had lobster fettuccini with shrimp and scallops. Highly recommended! Nice wine list with some great, affordable options. Amazing desserts, my favorite was the limoncello cake. Our entire experience was fantastic.

Enjoyed a great evening here Fabulous food (the fettuccine di mare, a favourite of mine was simply stunning and has probably spoilt any future ones I have!) First class service from our server Ricardo who was so friendly and polite - a real credit to any employer (and his Mamma!!) Highly recommend.

Came here for a group business dinner and what a delight. Food was spectacular. I had the Petto de Pollo Marsala. Chicken melts in your mouth...sauce was amazing.
