There are only positive things to say about any aspect of this restaurant. The staff was fabulous and our server, Kathleen, immediately recognized our preference for other seating; we never asked but rather she asked us. She was my definition of a perfect server in that she was both professional and outgoing and friendly.

The menu options were varied and I appreciated they offered the opportunity to split two pasta dishes as one entree - perfect for those indecisive people like me. Everything we ordered was on point and delicious. From the Caesar salad, to the ravioli special, to the fusillioni with mushroom cream sauce, to the tiramisu. They have wine flights, as well. This is considered an upscale restaurant but was not a bit stuffy. They offer cooking demonstrations and private cooking lessons; we will definitely take advantage of one of these on our next visit to HHI.

My only regret is that they are a two hour drive from home.

We gave ourselves and our adult children a cooking class with Chef Trey for Christmas and we had a great time. We made a lump crabmeat tower, lobster risotto and pasta with shrimp. We were welcomed with unlimited Prosecco and wine with our meal. We all sharpened our knife skills and got to sample fresh ingredients as we prepared the food.

Attended the cooking class. Chef Trey Pace did an outstanding job with Winter Winner! Chicken Dinner! Informative, easy to see and follow, able to take home recipes and try all recipes with fabulous wine.

We were fired up for a high end Italian dinner but left wanting. Very limited menu (both appetizers and main dishes). Seemed like the focus was on exotic and not blocking and tackling. Service was a bit S L O W.... MY family loves Italian but couldn't really get what they were looking for.
