Very nice dinner and atmosphere. Don't forget to make reservations as this is a tough table to get in season. The Osso Bucco with risotto was a very good entre.

Visited because of reviews. Not what I expected for the high ratings. Be aware this is a two storey restaurant. We ordered a glass of Italian spumante which is a white champagne. We were served a glass of red wine. We sent it back. Server brought a flat flute of champagne. We sent it back. Third time he got it... More

We had previously enjoyed food from Michael Anthony's market, but this was our first visit. We started with execellent cocktails, followed by Gamberi di Caldo con Cannellini for a starter. For dinner my wife enjoyed the fish of the day (flounder) and I enjoyed the Capesante con Risotto. Staff was friendly and quite knowledgable. We will return.

My husband and I visited the restaurant with our two teenaged children. The atmosphere was beautiful inside, which was surprising based on its strip mall location. Nicky and Peter served us as a team. We had two different carpaccio appetizers, which were good - but the special one was better with the aged Angus meat. Sorry, can't remember specifics. I... More

I started with an Italian wine flight, which was delicious. I received bread with a complimentary tomato bruschetta. The salad of the day and the pasta with sausage were delicious. Portions were just right. The staff did not rush me, which is not typical for a solo diner.

Impeccable atmosphere, 5 star food, personable owners. This place was warm and inviting while maintaining a top-notch classy feel. Wait staff was amazing and the proprietors stayed and spoke with us at length after our meal. It has been nearly a year and we are still talking about this place. A truly amazing establishment.

Our family of four found this restaurant off of Trip Advisor on a visit to HHI. Based on the reviews we decided to give it a try. Food was amazing!! I got the scallops with risotto, my son got the swordfish special (the best!), my husband got the chicken piccata, and my younger son got the gnocchi. He didn't love... More

Wonderful ambience, fantastic food, professional wait staff. You can taste how fresh all of the ingredients are. I live in New York and I can't remember the last time I had such a good Italian meal. We are going back again tomorrow night.
