Went with a Groupon. Dinner for 4. 4 glasses of wine 4 entrees and 2 appetizers. No dessert no coffee. Cost without tip would have been about $125. Appetizers were good and entrees were sized well. Quality was good. Surrounding area isn't so good.

They have many meat and seafood dishes and you can order a salad instead of the pasta. They have a portobello appetizer that is delicious.
