My husband and I had a very good dining experience at this oceanfront restaurant. This is the original location as they have opened another on Great Neck Road. Cocktails were generous and well mixed. We both had veal....one alla marsala and one alla Francese. Both perfectly cooked. A salad comes with the entree. House dressing is too oily for my... More

Hadn't been here for many years, but decided to return. Service was good, although we were seated by the windows and it was quite chilly ... in hindsight, we should have asked to be reseated immediately. Ordered a coffee to warm up a bit, but the coffee was cold. Food was good, but had to wait quite a while because... More

An extensive menu with a decent wine selection. The food is a tad pricey but very good and the service is attentive and good. The eggplant parm is good but not great. They have some alternatives to pasta like spiral cut zucchini. The valet parking is free (except for tip of course) and a blessing in The Oceanfront Area.

Have long been a fan of their Atlantic Ave restaurant and so happy to have one in my neighborhood. Dinner for 4 was very good. I think they may be working some kinks out though overall was a good experience. Two of us had the pounded veal chop which was very good. One person had the lamb chops and said... More

In Virginia Beach for business and staying at the Springhill Suites across the street. I knew the restaurant as pricey but my curiosity was awoken with the great reviews that this establishment has, along with the benefit of a Groupon that I purchased. I have to say that my experience was a total disappointment - starting with a $7.00 caesar... More

We were in VA Beach for USCAA XC Nationals and I wanted to bring our crew to a nice Italian restaurant on our last evening. I believe we arrived ahead of the dinner crowd and calling ahead seemed a good move. We were seated quickly and service was prompt and professional throughout. Our gluten free as well as vegetarians all... More

We had dinner at their new Great Neck location and it was very good. The flounder special was terrific as was the shrimp scallop stuff. The service was attentive, albeit a tad slow due to the Friday nite crowds. For a very busy restaurant, it was surprisingly well managed and the food was great.

Great service and warm atmosphere. Dined here in Aug 2016 with family friends. Entire group enjoyed dishes from their menu. Prices are little on the high end but you get what you pay for! We were disappointed that they are closed for lunch when we tried to dine again the next day.
