    Waited 1hr 15 for a slice of pizza & an appetizer; everything was tasty but way too salty. Good food, suffocatingly upscale atmosphere. Probably won't go back.

    Early in the evening and late at night, look for free platters of salumi to go with the cocktails and wine.

    My wife and I went here last weekend and they put out a ton of really delicious and appetizers at about 11:00. It was like happy hour at the end of the night. Great stuff.
