Thankfully we were able to get a last-minute seating reservation here. It was on the patio, and chilly, but they accommodated us with a couple heaters. All of our drinks, salads, dinner items, and desert were very tasty. I had eaten at their sister restaurant...More

We had a lovely birthday dinner for my HH on a Friday night. We sat on the patio and everything was perfect. The prime filet mignon carpaccio was a wonderful antipasto. The stuffed veal chop was huge and delicious and as was the cioppino. Our...More

Tabasco made them barely palatable. The 12 oz. prime rib was overcooked and...More

We could have ordered a little cheaper but we got what we wanted which resulted in a pricey lunch, though most enjoyable. Calamari in spicey tomato sauce appetizer which would have been more than enough for two--was a little firey but good; side of fetticcine...More

I'm not really sure of the answer to this question since I don't have dietary restrictions. You might want to pick up the phone or email direct this question to them.
