    Fantastic experience on many levels. The service was impeccable. The food was beyond delightful. The flavors and combinations were next level. If you are comfortable sharing small plates, take some friends and explore this new treasure. Be mindful, if you are famished, youre looking at three or four plates per person for dinner. These are european size portions (ie: not the “fat pants” experience) The bar is limited to wine sake and beer but ask for something creative (you wont be disappointed!!) As for dessert - if they have the semifredo dont pass on it… delicious!!!

    Staff were very kind and personable, clearly knew and cared a lot about the menu and offered us free tastings of wine. The food was also excellent, including the desserts which may change regularly as I could not find them listed on any menus. Would definitely go again.

    Another delicious restaurant by the Nai group. The food was very delicious and great and unique combination of fresh in-season ingredients. The staff was helpful and friendly and fun. I don't know which I like better - the original Nai or now a new favorite, Emilia.

    Great food. Solid service. Beautiful and inventive drinks. The food came quickly and the owner gave us free drinks and dessert which was so nice and generous. We definitely stayed at the restaurant chatting for way too long but they never once made us feel like we had to leave. I’d definitely go back and bring other friends.
