A good choice for a great Italian taste. The place has a lovely patio and the whole restaurant gets packed. Food is wine, service is great and wine selections add even more value. A good casual place to check out!

We dined at 411 for a larger work dinner last week and the food was excellent. Enjoyed a salad, the lemon linguine seafood pasta dish, and a delicious tiramisu for dessert. The blood orange cocktail was beautiful too!

Very generous portions of delicious food. The kale salad was delightful with butternut squash and goat cheese. Reasonably priced for quality and portions. Lots of good pizza and some local ingredients.
