From the moment we arrived until we left, the customer service was perfect. The food was beautiful and the wine and cocktail were ideal accompaniments. An Italian movie playing (without sound) in the background was a nice touch. We sat in the heated area outside...More

We popped in for a quick dinner before dropping a friend to the airport and also had a baby with us. The staff were very accommodating and had us in and out quickly. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The antipasto stater was the stand-out for me.
