We came in for our wedding anniversary and made a reservation for 8:30pm. The host let us know quickly that they were preparing our table and invited us to have a seat at the bar. Since they were running behind, they gave us our first round of drinks on the house. The gentleman at the bar was knowledgeable and so kind and inviting - we appreciated the conversation we had with him. The host kept us updated on our table and once we sat down, the ambiance upstairs was beautiful and a total vibe. Such a great date night atmosphere! Our server David was WONDERFUL... he was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine, and really added a warmth to our overall experience. Thank you for a lovely anniversary dinner! We will be back!

Absolutely delicious!! A little snafu with the parking situation. It is $10 to park in the lot adjacent to the restaurant, no matter if you use the valet or self park.

The Wagyu crostini was delicious but the bread was thick and overwhelmed the flavorful ingredients.

The star of the night was the pork chop. Perfectly cooked and the flavors were were amazing.

Will definitely return.

Awesome service and recommendations from our server. The menu is a combination of more adventurous fare and some more traditional pastas/entrees that are executed with perfection. I normally go for more unique dishes at restaurants like this, but my eyes were drawn to the Chicken Parmesan and it was *exactly* what I wanted it to be.

Highly recommended!

The dining experience was excellent. As we happen to enjoy fine Italian dining we were fortunate that they chose Italian fare for their offeringsAt this time. Overall, the experience was superlative. Grazie

Food & drinks were good, but pricey. The apps were the highlight - the maitake mushrooms & charred broccoli set the bar high. We tried a couple of the special entrees which were also good, but not necessarily a standout like the apps were. Atmosphere was nice, although seating couples along a long table close to each other isn't very private. Dessert was OK - the tiramisu was lacking in coffee flavor and very heavy on the creamy custard which didn't have much flavor.

Everything was sooooo perfect! I can almost say that this was the best dining experience so far I have had in Pittsburgh (I’ve lived here for 4 years and I constantly go out and try new restaurants). We ordered foie gras, veal tartare and heirloom tomatoes as our starters and the foie gras and tartare are absolutely beautiful. And strongly recommend the grilled bronzino (for two), it reminds me of the bronzino I had in Italy! And the dessert—zabaglione is wonderful, too!

We are not ready to recommend yet--we had mixed feelings--some dishes were quite nice but one dish was too salty; there is a heavy reliance on ricotta in many dishes; all the food was rich; some of the pasta was hard because not properly cooked. And some of the dishes are very expensive as in $16 for a small bowl of plain pasta. We will wait a while before returning.

The food was fantastic, my wife and I enjoyed the grilled Branzino, fried potatoes (crispy on the pit and soft on the inside) and the mushroom risotto. All three dishes were excellent and cocktails were very good too. Would recommend to anyone wanted a good meal, nice cocktails an upscale ambiance.

The more focused menu is a welcomed change, pasta dishes were fantastic hitting all the right notes. If this place allows for a not-rushed dining experience, it should be expressed prior to dining: meal took two hours, very unnecessary.

Food and service was excellent. The music was a bit too loud. I never can understand why higher end restaurants feel the need to blast music as if it’s a bar rather than a restaurant. It’s not a relaxing dinner when we have to raise our voices in order to have a conversation. That said, we will be back.

The hostess and the waitress looked very “mad”. The waitress sounded very judgmental when taking our order. Attitudes are a huge part in the hospitality industry and our experience here was extremely low.
We sat on the second floor and it was relatively quiet but the environment on the first floor was more open and lively. The ceiling on the second floor was also lower than normal and it gives you a depressing feeling.
The food in general was alright. Was disappointed with the foie gras and steak. I highly recommend their caviar and halibut collar. Otherwise there wasn’t anything that really amazed us.
The interior decorations had a theme but lowkey inconsistent. It feels like the designer couldn’t decide what he or she wants or there was a lot of conflicts and arguments between the designer and owner so they reached a suboptimal choice lol. The pillows are actually spikey, so it hurts your skin on the back.
Had high expectations but was really disappointed.

Waiter was friendly, knowlegable, courteous and attentive. Food was very good and reasonably priced except for the duck which seemed a little high. The brussel sprouts were excellent as was the lobster/caviar appetizer. The skate was also very good. Wine list was adequate and reasonably priced. Would recommend the restaurant and will likely return.

Food is extravaganza and service is very attentive. Like the design so much where abundant plants and the stylish furniture together bring tranquility.
Portion is gigantic, be cautious when ordering. Large means a lot and desert is meant to be shared.
