Very nice Italian restaurant with good service and knowledgeable wine pourers, but plan ahead 2-3 weeks. It's hard to find a table in the front dining area. We sat at the bar and still enjoyed ourselves. I had one of the specials - rubbed bison ribs with polenta and Brussel sprouts. It was divine. My wife had straight up old... More

I would like to extend a huge thank you to our waiter who went above and beyond. I do not remember his name sadly but he was beyond helpful and sweet. We made a reservation, and this is very important to do since this is a BUSY place, and for good reason! The waiter told us the specials, and allowed... More

Been here several times for the last couple of years and the service and food has been on point every time. One dish I would highly recommend as a appetizer is the Fiocchi fresh pasta purse stuffed with pears, gorgonzola and walnuts with drawn sage butter and prosciutto. It didn't sound that appetizing for me but it is a for... More

This is outstanding Italian dining. I order Veal Marsala often, and this is probably the best I've ever had. Everyone loved their appetizers, salads and main courses. My husband couldn't decide if he would like one of the specials, so the wonderful waiter brought him a sample of the sauce, which was excellent. He ordered the dish and was very... More

Great spot for old school neighborhood Italian semi-fine dining. Dim room, open kitchen, and white tablecloths lend an air of nostalgia. Great food across the board--the ravioli was stunning, the pork chop enormous. The desserts spectacular. Nice wine list--great cocktails. Yes and more yes. Service was spot on and very entertaining, as the young lady waiting on us had a... More

Awesome experience tonight celebrating my hubby's 65th birthday. Decided on the Wine Bar in the back of the main restaurant and absolutely loved it. Ravioli and crab cakes for appetizers were actually almost a meal and yummy. Then the meal ... veal with Marsala and the snapper special were to die for. Add to that an Elizabeth Spenser from the...

That's the place for an authentic Italian dining with pasta, veal chops, penne a la vodka and more. You can also eat in the well furnished wine bar/cellar located behind the restaurant; it is small but quaint. Always a wait, but worth it.

Outstanding food. The space is a bit cramped...but that is a direct result of just how good the food is. Getting a reservation can be tricky, but the experience is worth the effort. Do yourself a favor - order the Penne Vodka w/Pancetta. Other dishes will entice, but this one is a "can't miss". Benvenuto!

Was taken here on business trip by some associates. Menu looked like average Italian restaurant, but wait for the specials! I had duck leg on gumbo and rice. Other non-Italian dish specials. Wine list full of excellent choices that were very affordable priced. Big name wines at well below expected prices. Wait staff was professional, attentive and fun.

Restaurant is great, fabulous food. We have had to wait a long time, but it is worth the wait. Parking has been improved greatly, so not an issue anymore. If you want a great Italian experience then this is the place. Staff is friendly, know their business.

Thank Heather D
