Loved the old school ambiance of the place, both the decor and the service. We ordered a burrata salad special appetizer, the semolina crusted shrimp entree, the veal milanese entree special, and tartufo for dessert. The burrata was very cold, and not creamy, and somewhat flavorless. The shrimp dish was excellent, lightly dusted and fried and served over a well made risotto. The veal milanese was a giant portion, the cutlets thin and perfectly fried. The salad on top was a mix of arugula, endive and radicchio. It needed a little more dressing, it was a bit dry and the salad mix was a bit bland. The dessert selection was disappointing. For us to pick a tartufo is a last resort. It was rock solid, obviously not made on site. I don't know how long this place has been in business, maybe their chef is a bit lazy, or perhaps they are just suffering from this pandemic. Fresher ingredients, a little more pizazz and homemade desserts would make this a solid winner for me. Again, service was excellent.

The outdoor dining is warm, inviting and overall wonderful. The staff is experienced, on the ball and seasoned. The food is always excellent. The mussels were really stand out, the rack of lamb perfectly cooked and the calamari, FRESH.

The food is good, and they did ok with the outdoor dining. It was quite cold though. Service needs to be greatly improved. It took a while to get menus and we still had to ask for them. Entres took a long time. We ordered before 2 other tables and they got their food first. Waiter wasn’t around very much.
