I ordered the chicken, which was well-seasoned but a bit dry. Despite this, it had a great taste, and the wine sauce was delicious. The broccolini was tender, and the potatoes with onions were nicely cooked. I would order this dish again. My husband had the burger with fries; both were very flavorful. However, the prices were a bit high for chicken and a burger. The carrot cake was fresh and delicious, and the small scoop of coffee ice cream or gelato was a nice touch. I'm on the fence about returning, but it was a good experience, with nice seating by the window. It's worth a visit for a first-time experience, but I wouldn't make a special trip just to dine there.

The food is outstanding and the wines are very good. Service is very good and they are happy to serve on separate plates when you choose to share an appetizer and/or entree. And sharing is what we do at most places because the portions are normally too large for one person. Reservations seem to be highly recommended, if not almost mandatory as this is a very popular venue.
