Lasagna was UHHMAAZIIIING. I took my girlfriend (fiance now - YAYY me) to this spot and it was really good. I walked in and a girl was playing a live harp, and then I thought, "Wow this place is legit." I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Refined experience the moment you walk in. David is a great host, the wait staff very attentive , polished and professional, the ambience is classy without being pretentious, and there’s noticeable attention to detail everywhere (quality of table cloths, fresh flowers on every table, silverware, etc...). And then there’s the food... very fresh ingredients, exquisite combination of delicate flavors in a balanced act of love from the chef Raffaella Morelli. From a delicious grilled seafood appetizer, the exquisitely thin layers in the lasagna, to the perfectly cooked fillet, a true lover of fine food will leave this restaurant completely satisfied.
