Found this gem to be over the top in their wine list, cuisine for all and the most attentive staff in recent memory. My salmon was killer and the carbonara was almost dish-licking good. Highly recommended.

Granted we were a big party, but service was slow and some things got forgotten. When the food came it was good, but not outstanding. The decor of the restaurant is very classy. Front desk very efficient.

Location is great, atmosphere and service was very good and the food was excellent. In the back it's more relaxing however I like the front part also, because it's a little bit more relaxed.

Hi, I've never seen a gluten-free menu or any dishes that denoted as such in their dining room, but then I've never asked. Play it safe and call them directly.
