The food was fabuloso and the service was high touch. I love when an entire wait staff caters to you, not just your assigned server. The ambiance is superb! I will definitely be returning. Do not leave without dessert; the tiramisu is absolutely divine!!

The restaurant was very busy, with several groups. The noise level was quite high as a result. Service was a bit slow, but the food was excellent. It's a BYO place, with a nearby liquor store. Everything was fresh and delicious. We'll be back.
