When it is about Italian restaurant my acid test is always the Tiramisu. They have an outstanding Tiramisu, and to me, it says it all. True mascarpone cheese and all the rest. Try it! And all the courses were excellent, the quality of the ingredients...More

I went to La Fenice with my dad to catch-up on life and celebrate my sisters’ birthdays. They couldn’t make it. They live up North- but any excuse to party! We had the prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe to start. I was almost full. They brought us...More

Service very good. Food was excellent. Recommend the lamb. Portions are large enough to share. Important note: you cannot get a cab from here. You need to walk a block to a nearby hotel and try your luck. We were unsuccessful and almost missed curtain....More

This is an older, Italian restaurant. It is very attractive and the service is excellent. It can be, however, very crowded before the theatres open, but after that is empties out. The food is very good.

My parents took me for a wonderful Birthday lunch here last month, carpaccio was to die for and the veal was perfect, best I’ve had. Absolutely lovely, and great personable service. I look forward to my next visit.

We were looking for Italian food and chose this little place based on reviews. The food was simply prepared but absolutely delicious. Portion sizes are generous too. Why only 4 stars? Can't quite put my finger on what was missing but call it ambience, atmosphere,...More
