The food and atmosphere are superb. Had fresh oysters, a special, and they were delicious. Not cheap but worth it. Kobe meatballs were served on a plate of fresh ricotta and they were super yummy. Chicken parm was crispy and delicious.

Do not need a reservation, however, it's hit or miss depending on crowd. I've been there on a Tuesday with no wait to sit outside and on a Friday when it was an hour wait. Reservations probably a good idea.
