Ate here with 12 people. Had a Private Dining room. Had a blast and great service! Everyone had something different. I had bone in Filet. Yummo. Sides were great too. Thought the appetizers were OK, nothing special. Disappointed in quality of the Calimari and I think it was cooked too long. Would go back!
