Butternut squash ravioli was sweet and tasty. Great wine list or cocktails. Our waitress was friendly and helpful with the specials for the day. She took pleasure making sure we were satisfied. Very clean restaurant with exquisite decor. Have never had a dissatisfied visit.

We were there for a wedding and ate our rehearsal dinner there the night before. It was nice, definitely close to our hotel, and I don't really know what else to say.
