A group of 9 of us ate dinner on Saturday night, beautiful atmosphere, outstanding service and the food was the best Italian I have ever had! I will certainly return!

Excellent food, location and atmosphere. I'm somewhat of an Italian food snob and found the food amazing. Many traditional recipes and don't forget to order the cheesecake. Delicious and we will be back every time we visit PL.
