Yummy food. Quality service. Glitches galore but Brian, the GM, more than compensated for unexpected problems. Our business group had a wide assortment of meals and beverage. Our transportation arrived. Our bill did not. We waited and waited. Ah. The proverbial glitch but Brian turned it into the proverbial gift with grace and kindness. His efforts will travel far and...

I like the Italian tapas style of serving. I usually order 2 dishes and my friends do too. We share the food and it's usually very good. I'm not much of a drinker, and I don't like the wine. Great coffee and dessert too. All around good place to eat

My husband and I go here whenever we can for date night. We are always happy with the menu variety and food quality. I love the small portions so that I can try many different dishes. The bruschetta are yummy, my favorite is the goat cheese and caramelized onions. The meats and cheeses, pizzas, and pastas are always good too.... More

Great small plates and delicious wine and cocktails. Not a cheap date - but ask for bread and you can expand your expenditure. Superb meats and cheeses.

My wife and I went here for a date. I enjoyed the food more than she did, and my only complaint is the portion sizes. Expect to pay a hundred dollars or so with drinks for a couple. Most of the dishes were not filling but tasted great. I highly recommend the tuna bruschetta.

My husband and I love this restaurant! Great food, wine and service! The tuna bruschetta is a MUST! Great place to also go with a large group or even bring a well-behaved child. The staff is very accommodating!
