We were disappointed with our food on this visit. Not quite up to par. The Bolognese sauce had very little flavor.

I had halibut on pearl couscous. The halibut was moist and perfectly pan seared. with bits of red peppers.

Ate there twice too - everything we had was awesome. Had drinks - also spaghetti, chicken, and shrimp. All were fabulous.
