I hosted a business dinner and the food was amazing. Nice wine list, beautiful presentation. We had a variety of wonderful appetizers to share (risotto balls and egg bruschetta were excellent). Pasta dishes are fresh, reasonably priced, and unique. Fun ambiance. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed the soft eggs and lobster bruschetta different and delicious. Main course loved the crab ravioli and the red wine spaghetti. Lobster spaghetti was just ok. Pom martini only average. Overall excellent food.

Good food and drinks. had a wonderful pineapple shrub drink that I went home and made. not as good as theirs but good. The only reason for a 4 is that it is a little pricey.

Not sure if is it still hard to get into, but if you do it is worth it. Very good food and service. Nice variety on the menu. Not the cheapest place in that neighborhood.
