the good: valet parking, espresso martini, the bread the bad: wine very overpriced, food very safe -- more about production than original, authentic flavors the ugly: maybe a bad night but too bad to try again

Charming with excellent food. Parking may be an issue so use the valet. The stuffed mushrooms apps were wonderful. Really enjoyed the Chicken Marsala. Portions are large so plan accordingly. Bread was not served until mid meal when we requested it.
