The food is excellent. Every time I've been here, it's like walking in from Colorado into another atmosphere. The desserts are to die for. I would suggest getting a window seat. It's wonderful people watching.

We ordered pasta, salad, fish and red wine. The pasta was nothing special, we can get this kind of taste from any Italian restaurant, and the price is O.K.
