    Amazing food — as always. We’re never disappointed here! The scallops with truffle risotto are to die for ( I order this almost every time!). My husband had the pork tomahawk chop and OMG — a couple bites of that … I’ve never had a pork chop that tender & juicy in my life! We laughed about having “manners” in public so he wouldn’t gnaw at the bone!

    What a gem of an Italian restaurant! Home made pasta and risotto were both delicious, the risotto with a generous portion of black truffles. Excellent wine list as well and our server Pedro was very attentive and made sure we had a great time. Can’t wait to return!

    I have Celiac and the waitress was very knowledgeable about gluten free protocol, which was amazing. They had gluten free rolls which were A+, the risotto I had was awesome and the pistachio crème brûlée was next level. Portions were perfect. Will definitely go back!

    Really happy we tried this place. The arancini and homemade focaccia were GREAT, but the bruschetta board was so so (sweet toppings), the Caesar salad was fine. The bolognese pasta was AMAZING my only complaint was that the portion was too small. The pizza was also awesome. And the tiramisu… so yummy especially the presentation. Decor was a little odd in the restaurant but it was small, clean, cute. Can’t wait to return. Espresso martini also a must.

    We were very disappointed to say the least to have picked this restaurant on New Year’s Eve. We paid over $275 for food that was cold and raw. This was a horrible New Year’s Eve experience to say the least. We had to keep calling to see what your prefix menu was since you didn’t list at all. To find out the day of what it is and if we didn’t like the menu it was too late to make reservations to another place. The appetizer was cold and felt like it had been sitting there for sometime before it was served, same with the soup…it was completely cold. The steak that we had to pay extra for was raw inside and cold. It was not even the cut that was listed on the menu. The whole experience was very disappointing. The only good thing I can say was the staff was very nice and attentive. However to spend almost $300 on food and have it be horrible and to make it seem like this restaurant was going to be happening with a dj and toast at midnight, was not worth it at all. Would not come back here, felt like it was false advertising unfortunately.

    This place was outstanding! It is really cute inside, warm and welcoming. The service was excellent, with the waiter being very attentive but not pestering us. They brought us a free basket of bread, then another when we finished that (because it was so delicious with the oil to go with it). The food was wonderful! My pork chop was excellent and was cooked perfectly medium rare, just as I had requested. Fabulous.

    We had lunch and shared the arancini and bruschetta. Also we each had the butternut squash soup. As always that soup is delicious. Both of the shared dishes were very good. Loved the three different toppings that come with the bruschetta. Our waiter Pedro was very attentive and helpful with describing the menu.
