This place looks like the foyer of the Milanese corporate HQ of a multinational. Don't be deceived by the decor. It is a serious restaurant with food to die for (well, maybe not literally). The home-made pasta is exquisite, and the sauces complement it perfectly. As to the meat, we had seldom eaten more perfectly prepared beef and lamb. The fish ordered by other guests looked equally well presented. Don't stint on the wine, though: the house wine does the food no justice.

Good meal in lovely quaint side street location. Friendly and efficient service. The restaurant was always busy so have to get there early to get a table.

My wife and I arrived at 7 pm on a Saturday. Night without a reservation. Although only only a few tables were October upped, the woit3r looked like we were nuts, as all tables had been reserved, but 1 was reserved for 9, so he shrugged and Tokyo the reserved sign on the table and set it aside and sat us!

How Lucky! The rafter, several others arrived and we're turndown away. And after our outstanding dinner, we felt it had been a privelidege to be there!

Upon sitting, he suggested a lovely Gave white wine, terrific! Then a taster in white spoons ...a small sushi grade cube oder salmon surrounded by a puree of cantaloupe... with the wine...yummy.

My Mrs. Orders a primitive 22of tagliatelle with a bound veal suave email...oh my it was spent tabular. I ordered a aperiti of raw salmon tare tare with 4 dipping sauces...yum

For entrees, my lovely had the sliced steak that came with a small slice of this parmigiano on it, I had the filet in pepper sauce, spicy but very good. No room for desert...but we finished and left with 15 min to spare for the 9 pm couple! It was a wonderful dinner, pictures will be posted when we get home. Don't
Your lunch know, make a reservation, and don't miss this one!
