We actually came here to celebrate Fathers Day with family due to receiving a gift card, but the service and the food were really better than we expected. Veal was pretty good, risotto was very good and the bruschetta was excellent.

Needed a pit stop after a long day at CBS Studios being audience members so found this chain at The Grove. Not sure we have anything like this in the UK but the sharing idea certainly worked for us. We chose Chicken Parmigiana, Caesar salad...More
