Have eaten here a few times and am never disappointed. Service is quick and accurate. Food is phenomenal! I have tried the pasta purses (my favorite), lamb shank and the chicken mornay. I will dine here again when in the area.

Food was a little pricey but fairly large portions and tasted fine. We had to wait about 20 minutes to get seated and the service was ok.
