After paying $25.00 in cab fare we arrived to a sign on the front door. Considering I had just made the reservation last week and opentable emailed me that day to confirm, this was not expected. Not only put the cab fare but try getting another reservation inii last minute on a Friday night. Would have expected better from Opentable!!!

The menu was classic Italian dishes which were all well prepared and very good. The service was excellent and very attentive. Our waiter was very personable and answered all questions we had about the menu, including some about the preparations of a few things that we particularly enjoyed. it was not very crowded and room is setup for a white table cloth fine dining atmosphere. The value is OK with the prices being high, but it is inline with a nicer restaurant in a tourist area.

We are not normally dessert eaters but because one of us is gluten-free, we shared the flourless chocolate lava cake which was delicious. The service was faultess and our server was very knowledgeable about the food and wines. We will go again. Such a shame there were not more patrons but the advantage was that it was quiet and we could have a conversation without having to shout to be heard!

Apparently, it is a newer restaurant. Valet Parking is good, since it's right on Harding. We weren't very hungry, so I had a glass of wine and my friend and I split the salmon, which was a good size and very tasty. Service was excellent, but on the other hand, very few patrons were there.

I ordered the osobuco.My recommendation on this plate will be less tomato sauce. I could not see the meat. My husband order the duck and he said it was all right. But in general it was a good meal.

We can't wait to come back.

Asking why, we were told people arrive by 7:30 or later. first i looked at the wine list. i thought i was at the 4 Seasons in Manhatten. the least expensive wine was $55 for an Italian that is $13 at costco down the street. then the menu came. the waiter announced an assortment of specials that he indicated would be on the new spring menu coming out next week. so we tried to order from the old menu we were presented. i ordered a veal dish that was $36 on the menu, but the waiter said it was $64 on the new menu and that is the price. that went on for several minutes. Rather than leave we just ordered 4 meals, paid and left. We left at 8 pm and still no one was in the restaurant. one positive item was the singer who was great, but sang to an empty room. don't waste your time going to this place unless you want to spend too much money for good food when there are many more reasonable options out there.

Dinner was very good and the service was professional and attentive. We had dinner there a few days after the Grand Opening so it was not a busy night. Pricing was reasonable and I look forward to dining there again on a regular basis as I live locally

Same menu with a new name, we had to send back to dishes, very few people on a Saturday night. Service uneven. No Grey Goose vodka, the calamari inedible, the branzino also had to be sent back.

The restaurant was not busy so we thought we would get good service and certainly properly prepared food. Such was not the case. We should have realized when the drink orders came out wrong and the server insisted the drinks were correct that it was not going to be a good meal. The pasta dish that was described as very mild flavor was too spicy to eat, they took it back but must have just washed off the sauce as when the dish came back out the pasta had a terrible consistency. The dish that was to be spicy was very bland and they "fixed" it by sprinkling hot pepper flakes on it. This is not worth a second chance which is a shame as we need a great neighborhood restaurant.
