We were a party of 4 without a reservation early in the evening - celebrating a friend's 40th birthday. More than half the tables in the place were empty when we arrived, while we dined, and still when we left, yet the only option given...More

I've been trying to find an Italian restaurant that serves good Bolognese since one of my faves, Tré Bicchieri in Columbus, Indiana, changed its recipe. Ambrosia's sauce was bland and dry with a few chunks of tomatoes here and there. There wasn't very much flavor...More

All in all, this was a very nice experience. Dark, quiet space. The grilled octopus appetizer was absolutely delicious! The bread was also superb. My Ligurian seafood stew was good - came with a side of pasta. Our waiter was informative and appropriately attentive. One...More

We had a lovely dinner - each of the three of us had something different, and each of us delighted with our choice. Two of our diners also had dessert; the tiramisu and the cheesecake with raspberry glaze. Both were wonderful.
