We went there on saturday night for dinner - make reservations - we had them and were seated in a minute - however we heard that there was a 2 hour wait without reservations.

We went in directly for our main course as we were not too hungry - I had the Vegetable ravioli which was amazing - and my wife had the gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce. The gnocchi was a tad bit bitter. My 3 year old had the fettuccine Alfredo and it was the best alredro sauce i have had - wonderfully seasoned.

do make room for dessert - we had the banana cheesecake wrapped in a tortilla - lightly fried and served with ice cream - it was heavenly - we were literally licking our spoons :)

The cocktails were pretty good too - my wife had the chocolate martini while i had a couple of mojitos and they were good.

The service was prompt - non intrusive yet very attentive.

we would definitely go back again
