Went with a Gustazo coupon, but it's menu was not available. Not a lot of parking area. Excellent service, great atmosphere and lighting. Food was good, especially their avocado risotto, everything else didn't taste anything spectacular for the $129.00 tab for two. Sangria was average but loaded.

Our visit today was just excellent! We had the salmon with malanga and the pork loin with mushroom risotto. The service was on point. Our sever Yousef really cared for us during this evening. For dessert we had the Hershey créeme rule. PS: MUST ORDER THEIR SANGRIA!

New owners have freshened the decor, the menu is typical American Italian, served with fresh ingredients and a very friendly staff. Excellent wine prices and good lunch specials.

Needed a vegetarian meal that evening. and they kindly prepared me a fettuccini meal with mushrooms, black olives and pesto sauce that was very good. Would like to go back to explore the risottos. Valet Parking available.

We went on Saturday for a dinner using a Gustazo and the two plates were Shrimp with Linguini and Churrasco with risotto. I asked for a medium well term and it was salty and overcooked. The risotto was ok. The Shrimp with linguini was ok. Service ok. Dessert chocolate creme brulee was good.

First things first - the waiter, Jan, was excellent. Valet parking available, full service bar...nicely decorated....clean..... We were there in low season, it was around 8:00 PM on a Wednesday evening when we walked in. There was a table of two finishing up and us. So we had our choice of tables.... This restaurant has been around for at least... More
