The food is excellent and there were actually some choices for the vegetarians in our group. The ambience is warm/welcoming inside and lovely in the outdoor patio/garden in the summer months. Recommend you get reservations for weekends in the summer!

The outdoor seating area in the back is really nice. That was the highlight of our dinner. The food was good but not amazing.

Menu selection was very extensive and most items had immediate appeal. I've been there a few times and never had a bad experience. Highly recommended.

My partner and I called for drinks. Once sat in the patio with the fire pit it provides an incredible ambiance. Great selection wines. Located in the heart of little Italy this patio feels like an oasis in the middle of the bustling city.

This must be a place the locals go to because it was very busy. The staff welcomed me and seated me quickly. The food was outstanding and most filling. A glass of wine followed with a good coffee and cake ended my experience.

it probably depends on how well behaved they are public. As previously noted it's a rather upscale restaurant.
