This lovely restaurant has a creative chef who serves authentic Italian cuisine. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Pasta is wonderful and his veal is very tender and cooked perfectly. This is definitely my go to place for Italian food.

This duck was a special, not on the menu, but it was the best I've ever had. Served over sweet potato mash, with veggies and came with an amazing plum sauce.
