Was delicious, great service. Had the truffle pasta and the sea bass. Calamari also great. The best was the Barbera d'asti red wine by the glass, really loved it.

Great food and service as always. Love this place. Can’t go wrong no matter what you order but the T-bone for less than $40 is a must!

Spent Valentine's day here and had a wonderful mean. Started off with some red wine that we brought. Yes, there is a corkage fee. Split a couple of appetizers, with my favorite being the caprese, which was amazing with the large cut of tomatoes and cheeses. Also went with the asapargi, which was also very nice. For dinner we split the pasta made in the cheese wheel. We paid for it to be served tableside, which was a little disappointing since it was done behind us, and we didn't even know until the plates were being served to us. Had their Tiramisu for dessert which was great. Overall, great dining experience. Was happy we were seated outside of the main dining area and away from the bar and kitchen. Seemed to be alot going on in there, and being away from there let us enjoy over evening even more.

The place was so pretty specifically it was well designed for Valentines Day , but the service not so well. I didn’t ask for a Fotuchini , i wanted angel hair pasta with alferedo sauce , but he braught me Fotochini, and when i asked him to change it he had attitude!
Overall , the food was good.
