The service has always been superb and the food is always heavenly. As I consistently overindulge when eating here, I never make plans for after dinner.

This is a great restaurant, we had 4 different entrees and everyone was thrilled. My Oso Buco was the best ever. The Duck was amazing as well the Shrimp and Crab. Orlando our waiter was fantastic, both with his recommendations and service.

across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Actually, we went and we brought our wine with us. Worked out perfectly and the corkage fee was a modest $15. Of course we would not do this if ordering from the menu but it was a special bottle.
