Great place for a weekday city lunch, food is very nice and they are accommodating for individuals with allergies / dietary requirements. Wine selection is good.

I've been here a number of times either to grab a salad at lunch time or have a sit down with colleagues or friends working nearby. The food is always very good and the service is professional and speedy. Great place for a business lunch.

Trendy upscale trattoria located down a small alley, hidden behind an office building. It's hard to find (my friend took me here), thus it's mostly local employees who eat here, not tourists. Airy, modern interior on 3 floors, the downstairs is casual, upstairs you will...More
