Insalata is a very good kind of modern Italian restaurant. It's a pleasant experience in a fairly quiet room. The food is well done and somewhat inventive. The portions are very small. I had the black pepper pappardelle with squash and mushrooms. It had a...More

It's been many years since we've eaten at this restaurant and we still love it. We met friends there recently for lunch and we all loved our meal. Generous portions and very good service.

While we'd love to go more often, the $225 price tag that goes with our family of 5 (only two adult beverages) makes this a special occasion place for us. The trio of dips amazing and entrees never disappoint. Youngest loves the duck! They do...More
