A consistently good choice for dinner. Service is old school, and the food is great. The gnocchi is just about the best we have ever had. BYOB.

The restaurant takes reservations, but often there is a wait. The food and service are very good although we did feel a little rushed as there were people waiting to be seated. It is not inexpensive. but well worth it.

This place is consistently very good with a nice selection of Italian dishes served up by the same staff year after year. You really can't go wrong here for a nice couples night out or a family meal

Jacket and tie not required, but you may be more comfortable with a jacket only. Women are usually comfortable in a nice dress but not formal. Jeans are out.
Do you have a gluten free menu? I am Celiac and allergic to shellfish. Would you be able to accommodate me? My husband wants to try you for his birthday dinner.

Yes, La Foccacia does offer gluten free pasta and they have plenty of dishes that don't contain shellfish. I'm sure that they can suggest options or modify recipes to acommodate any other dietary restrictions you may have.
