The food was wonderful, the service top notch. I had the lobster risotto and was absolutely mesmerized by the flavor , the taste and the texture. The waiters were right there with whatever we needed but not pushy.

dark and expensive. Take along your sell phone to read the menu, but the Veal is very unusual and very good. Moved from a smaller location in the Village and now a very upscale restaurant.

We came as a group of eight, and our whole experience was nothing short of amazing. We were blown away by how gorgeous the historic atmosphere was, and the food and service was perfection. Definitely a foodie’s must-do in TC!

We sat at the bar for some small plates and wine. A nice selection of wines by the glass and bottle as well, lots of Italian varietals. Our favourite dish was the pulpo, tender and tasty!

Both pasta dishes we had were amazing, the kind that even though you feel you can’t eat another bite, you finish it because it’s THAT good. Delicious bread and extensive wine list. Service was great and the atmosphere is wonderful as well. Eat here!
