So special. Old style Italian meshed with haute cuisine. The food was superb, and the staff was impeccable. Diane is over-the-top spectacular.

Wow - this place is amazing. We got a recommendation from our hotel, and when we got there hardly anyone was inside, but it filled up to capacity before we left. No wonder. Food is amazing. Homemade ricotta was a nice touch, and everything we ate was fresh and flavorful. I really had to restrain myself from eating every last... More

First time eating here although we have been to this area numerous times this is our first experience. Our meals were excellent and our server Justin was helpful and very polite. This will definitely not be our last trip to this place. Worth the trip.

Order the she crab soup on a Cold night. It goes perfectly with their pinot gregio. I always order the portofino. My wife ordered scampi rose'. Do not skip dessert and coffee. Truffles were the dessert of the evening, but we usually have cannolis.

The crab soup was delicious. $33 scallop entre was okay. Service by Kathryn was excellent. Don't know what else to say but this must be 100 characters.
