This beautiful restaurant is the gem of the Highland Park neighborhood and really, the city. The decor is beautiful, the food perfect, and it is quiet and sophisticated. Our waiter, Adam, was excellent: very personable and knowledgeable. The chef/owner works very hard to produce a varied, interesting, and delicious menu. It was all perfect. We look forward to dining on the outdoor patio. We have been a few times and it is always special.

Overall friendly environment. Our waiter Adam is always on top of things. The owner and his wife make the restaurant feel like you are always welcome and not just another diner.

Fantastic food properly prepared a little pricey but worth it. The tiramisu was the best we have ever had. The service was good not great, and at that pric you should expect great. All in all a good meal we will return

The food was all really tasty, and I was surprised how much I was able to eat before feeling like I was full. I think this is a quality of good food. The veal chop was ridiculously tender. As a group of 6 eating family style, we all tried at least 5 dishes and none were disappointing.

The service is outstanding. From the moment you enter, you feel welcomed. There was never a moment that I had to seek out a waiter... he was always ready when we were.

The only quirk to the ambiance that we joked about was the music, but even that wasn't so bad.
