My wife and I went there for Happy Hour because their menu for food at that time looked great. It was. The food was perfect. The drinks were delicious. The service was first class. We'd definitely go there again.

We happened upon this place walking back to our hotel. Popped in and ate dinner. It was fantastic! Homemade pasta, delicious sauces, mouth watering desserts. So unexpected and unplanned. Very accommodating staff. Yummy wines.
