We have been coming to this wonderful establishment for 20 years. Absolutely first rate Northern Italian cuisine. Service excellent. If you are fond of risotto, polenta or veal among many choices then you must try this excellent restaurant.

My group had a business dinner here. The service and food were great. They have a limited menu, but the selections cover a lot of different types of food. They had a large wine list. It is a little noisy, but it was worth it.
