Daughter took me here for birthday celebration. First time to dine here but would definitely go back. Meal was cooked especially for us and served family style. All was to perfection, including dessert. Vinny chanted with us and is very personable,excellent chef from Italy.

I’m vegetarian, and I always get special treatment from the waitstaff and the chef. I order vegetarian dishes from the menu and they ask if I would like to add things that would really make it delicious and their suggestions are always spot on.
