    After receiving a recommendation from a friend, we booked a reservation which was not needed but could be on a busy night. Both our meals were delicious, each was a ten out of ten.

    Limited menu, only one appetizer for someone with shellfish allergies. Dinner was great except for the alfredo, not close to being served warm. Very friendly service, and overall a great place to start 2015!

    This gem is worth the trip to Gilbert. We had 5 in our party and everyone ordered a different dish. All the meals looked appetizing and tasted great. The Noise level in the dining area is off the charts. The Food made up for the noise but if some acoustic tiles were added to the ceiling it would become a world class restaurant.
