OWNER became irrate when diner QUIETLY requested an alternate entree when Steak dinner was too tough for eating. OWNER refused request & loudly to entire dining room demanded party of 6 to leave! He was obviously by his agitation impaired by drugs or alcohol. He followed the party put outside cursing & throwing debris. TRULY HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE .

Regina, as anyone reading this can imagine, the incident in question did not take place the way you describe. No employee at this restaurant would ever come to work under the influence and no one here would ever scream at or throw things at a customer. I don't know what prompted this false review but I would appreciate if you... More

I wrote a review couple of years ago extolling how great this restaurant was. It truly was fabulous. I went back couple of months ago, again to celebrate my father's birthday. It seems that the ownership and the head chef have changed. The food was not what it was. The staff was nice, but the service was a little slow... More

I hope you'll give us another chance to show you a meal that's to our typical high standard both in terms of food and service. Best, Marco M., Owner More

We have not been here for a number of years but the place has been spruced up. The white paint on the walls makes it brighter and the uniformly framed pictures of Italy are a nice addition.

We went there on a Monday night, it was nice and quiet. They have a wonderful wine list, they have amazing Barolo.We had the chicken liver and the beef carpaccio , both were amazing.

White tablecloths, Italian accents, large, sepia-toned photos of Italy, and candle light create the perfect atmosphere at this gem. Three separate rooms offer a variety of seating options, all of which feel intimate and welcoming. The food is prepared with a twist on tradition - kale in place of spinach, pureed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes, and it works well.... More
