Ordered takeaway from here...will never do so again. See what they call a caprese salad? Bread with meal...hot dog buns!!!! And see the lobster ravioli for $20? This place is a joke. Stay far away from this restaurant.

Saw this on a internet search. This was a VERY nice surprise. A relatively small dinning area, recommend reservations. I had veal, and wife had risotto, both very tasty. Our server (Gianna) was excellent. Definitely will come back and recommend this restaurant.
