My favorite dining establishment I've been to. Owner is fantastic, service is great, atmosphere is really good. The paillard di vitello with rigatoni alfredo is my personal favorite. Never had anything but great experiences! Wish this menu would come to Minnesota!

Mascarpone pizza and funghi risotto. Don't let the unwelcoming face of one of the waitresses scare you! Several Italians spearing there when we were leaving.
