We jhad an excellent dinner. Rachel and the rest of the team gave us stellar service. I had the hangar steak with a huge shitaki mushroom, great sauce and gnocchi. My husband had the watercress salad, dressing was to die for and the Scallops, The sauce on the Scallops the pears, cauliflower and broccolini were outstanding. He topped it off with a glass of arbarino and I had a glass of tamprinino with my steak which was cooked perfectly. The only improvement I see is a shortage of wines by the glass

Everything was wonderful. My husband had the house made sausage and he thought it was the best sausage he’s ever had! I had a wonderful vegetarian dish and a delicious cauliflower and kale salad.

Appetizer was good but main course was bland. Dessert average. Service was attentive but rushed - I think they try to turn tables over fast. Not as good as we’d hoped from the reviews. May just have been a bad night.
