    Family get-together. Table of 10. The food was outstanding, the service was very attentive and the violinist added the perfect touch of ambience. We will definitely be back!

    Awesome! Everything about this restaurant was first class! Loved the ambiance - beautifully and ethnically decorated. Loved the violinist playing at the tables! The food was deliciously ethnic and seasoned just right! Lighting was perfect - romantically lit! Waitress was top notch - extremely pleasant and patient. Owner and cook - gracious and fun! You will not be disappointed!

    I had gone to the restaurant many years ago in their other location and loved it. I had the pork schnitzel $23.00. There were 2 pieces. It was very dry and overcooked. The owner was very nice and redid it. It was just as dry. Also, the strudel , $9.00, was made with phillo dough and not the normal outer covering. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t go back.

    The best dining experience I’ve had in a long time!! Wonderful meal/cocktails (order the polenta!), and the staff is just so much fun.
