    I guess I would describe myself as a foodie and I would rate this as an exceptional overall experience. Food, ambiance and service all excellent. If I had one criticism, I think they could deepen the wine list. Otherwise a great experience.

    Loved it! All of the food was delicious and the service was perfect. The restaurant is small, so can be a bit noisy but that’s understandable.

    It was our anniversary and I included this information when I made the reservation. It would have been nice to get a complimentary dessert rather than just 'happy anniversary' written in Italian in chocolate on the plate of cookies we purchased. We had a bill of nearly $200 for 2 people, $240 including tip and a dessert would have been very nice. So many other restaurants do this and it builds customer good will.
