Lobster ravioli was cold in middle, obviously frozen and pre-made. Sauce on the veal chop had clumps of flour (?) making it taste chalky. Beautiful restaurant but these people are kidding themselves

Great atmosphere with wonderful food. The Italian pastas are fresh and a treat. Also able to enjoy fine wine selection to accompany some very tasty dishes. Be sure to leave room for a nice desert. Easy to reserve over the internet, plenty of parking.
