This was once one of the best restaurants in town; today, it's good, with personality. Still not special. I was excited to return four years ago after a remodel and new chef. I haven't been back--until now.
The menu has expanded and there are some very nice dishes. I enjoyed a Veal Picatta, lady friend a Shrimp Alfredo. Beginning with hers, it was very flavorful and a nice garlic flavor. Nice shrimp and a nice sized meal.
Mine was also very tasty, but not quite expected. To begin, the veal appeared to be a frozen cut, commercially breaded. Not a problem, as it was tender and flavorful--and veal is hard to get. But, it was essentially floating in a broth with a few noodles under. It should be noted that the noodles appeared to be hand-cut and the broth was flavorful, but nearly drowned the meat.
The meal began with a nice plate of warm herbed bread with an oil & vinegar dredge. A reasonable wine selection at reasonable prices was appreciated.
My comments from five years ago suggested skipping the desserts; my opinion holds. The "tiramisu" was what they used to refer to as deconstructed; ingredients dipped out on cookies. The flavors were better than I remember, with a wonderful coffee flavor, but it's still not tiramisu.
This is a pleasant little neighborhood restaurant in a popular part of town. If you're in the area, there's nothing wrong here. But, there are better options if your goal is excellent Italian food.
