Just had dinner at Cebu. Love the atmosphere. Had a drink at the bar before we sat for dinner. Ordered the squash blossoms for appetizer. I ordered the gnocchi and hubby had the steak. Waited a very long time for the appetizer. It was very good. My gnocchi were overdone. Nice flavor but to well done. Steak was very good.... More

Although I didn't eat all the food around me looked and smelled great! The truffle oil on the fries made me so hungry but I was trying not to eat that... More
