I have been wanting to try this place for years and finally went with my mom last night. The menu looked great and I would definitely say it was "modern Italian." Nice to see familiar flavors but with new and refreshing creative takes. Everyone there...More

Excellent food and service. The pork chop was cooked to perfection and the fish was prepared well. The appetizers included burrata with squash as well as home made meatballs. Enjoyable surroundings and food.

This was our anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint. Located in the historic "Oregon district" with complimentary valet service. The hostess was exceptionally friendly and I was seated right away (on-line reservation) even though I was early. We ordered soup and crustinis to start...More

I went to the restaurant because of the good reviews but found it to be disappointing and here's why: 1) Poor service: I had a reservation and when we got to the restaurant, the host wasn't there. So we stood there for 5 minutes until...More
