    My meal was excellent. The beef was perfectly cooked medium rare. I also thoroughly enjoyed the calamari appetizer and the wonderful tiramisu. Our server was charming as always, but the restaurant needs to train the bus people who have not learned that you don’t start cleaning the table while there are diners still eating.

    We always have a great time but I have to say, I got the Chicken Piccata and it was the best I have ever had anywhere. Also, as a Wine Club Member, I like the fact that you can get a free glass of wine if you don’t have time for a tasting. Our waitress was efficient and was very pleasant. We will be back soon. GD

    Amazing as always! Can’t beat their Cuban sandwich and 1905 salad. Their dinner is also incredible but it was lunch and sandwiches were calling our name. Every meal there is spot on and delicious. Service is always top notch. Love this place.
