Delightful outdoor patio. Pleasant interior. Good food and service. Pricey but nice for lunch and special occasions. Interesting specials. We love having an indulgent leisurely lunch on the patio. Live music often is accomplished conservatory students.

A cozy restaurant with very good food and pleasant background music flowing out from the violin strings of a player (female) moving around the room.

A great chef preparing food in ways that are absolutely amazing. My husband and I love summers on the quaint patio and dinners in the warm cozy environment indoors. Always a wonderful dining experience.

This is an unlikely (and happy) find in a city dominated by chain restaurants. Run by a couple from Torino, he's the chef and she's the manager.
