Great food, outstanding service, but a little high-priced for my budget. We were able to go, thanks to a gift card. Great place for special occasions. Just be prepared to shell out a lot of loot.

Solid but not great Italian food. Great service and the food was all tasty. I would consider going back but hard to believe this is a top 10 STL restaurant.

The ambiance of the restaurant is comfortable. Dim lighting, white tablecloths. Neatly dressed staff. Toasted Ravioli had such a delicate crust. Housemade and tasty.

Most dishes are in the $20-30 range. A decent bottle of wine is about $30. Regardless, as a 2nd generation Italian, it is well worth the money!
