This has been our "go to" Italian restaurant for years. We love the food and the service staff.

The eggplant parmigana is superb. The waitstaff is professional, attentive and friendly.
If I was to nitpick, it would be the lighting in the South portion of the restaurant. We sat near the wall and it was difficult to read the menus. The light from overhead fixtures is not very appealing and the small candles on the tables don't help. I recommend improvements to the lighting which will greatly improve the ambience.

The fish was dry and overcooked. Vegetables too salty.
$50.00 lunch for 2 people is not worth it.

Food was good as usual, a little frustrated slow service this time, not the norm and requested seating by live music and was told guests made reservations one year in advance there fore could not accommodate my request. I attempted to make a reservation one year in advance, it would not allow me to based on Cavatorie Guidelines. Why was I told this? The whole time we were dining there was empty seating in the area with the live music.

This restaurant has great food and service along with a very nice atmosphere. i was disappointed in the wine by the glass selection. My 2 favorite wines were only offered by the bottle - La Crema and Sonoma Cutrer and I usually find these wines offered by the glass at most other restaurants. The chocolate mousse dessert was delicious!
