This was our first visit here and we loved it! We had a reservation but when we got there, the restaurant was very crowded and a bit loud so we opted for a table in the bar area, which was perfect. Our dinner was great, the salmon melted in your mouth and the lasagna was delicious. Also highly recommend the pecan pie, homemade and perfect for sharing. We will definitely be back again.

This place was packed so make sure to make a reservation. We went another couple and had a great time. We could easily hear each other even though the tables were filled. The service, food, and wine were all really good.

My BF and I made a reservation for 8:00 pm on NYE. We arrived at 7:30 and was told that although we were early, they are seating folks at exact time slots. We found the bar which was pretty small and there weren’t enough seats and tables full of customers were sort of pushed up right against it. It was fine though, we ordered a bunch of drinks since it was NYE. We were seated around 8:15 or so. The server was great. We ordered rigatoni to start and some filet medallions as our second. Portions were huge and very tasty. Overall, good service, good food, but very crowded. There aren’t many good restaurants in the burbs so people tend to flock here.
