    We had a party of 6 and we were in a little semi-private room and it was perfect for our group! Everything was wonderful. The server was attentive, but not overbearing. We'll definitely go there again!

    The food delivered in every way possible. All menu options looked great. Preparation was top notch. Only exception is the calamari. It was completely boring, relatively tasteless and rubbery. Deserts were A++, especially to celebrate a birthday.

    I treated my bf to a date night here and it was great! Nice ambiance, relaxing Jazz music, great service and amazing food!! We Both had the Chicken Saltimbucca. It was delicious!! The only gripe I have is the sauce was a little greasy and acidic so my GERD didn't like it lol. But it was a great dinner otherwise! I recommend the risotto balls!!
