    Phenomenal food here. I had the mushroom agnolotti which was outstanding. Leave room for dessert. Also has a great happy hour at 9-10pm each night on the Cafe side.

    Solid option for a splurge in the Birmingham area. Excellent cocktails & seafood.

    Go to the cafe, not the restaurant. It's delicious. And if you like tea, get the iced tea with mint honey in it. (as told to me, not my personal recommendation)

    The Parmesan Soufflé was amazing. Had Braised Short Ribs that were so very tender and flavorful. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Atmosphere was A++.

    Beyond delicious. The wild sea bass was perfectly seared and the James Dean salad was extra fresh.

    The parmesan souffle very nice, the tuna also very good if you like hot flavours!

    The upscale Italian restaurant has a sister café featuring wood-fired pizzas. We recommend the white pies, with a flavorful, meaty topping.

    Cafe side is civilized and lovely. Service is sincere and attentive. Food is fabulous. And honestly for the price, you cannot go wrong. Loved the flat iron steak mid-rare. Perfectly sized and cooked.

    Parmesan soufflé is a must. The Parpadelle (forgive my spelling) is wonderful as well.

    The cafe side has a much more lively (and, in my opinion, more fun) atmosphere than the restaurant side, and the food is every bit as good.

    The octopus is awesome and the sea bass is unbelievably delicious!

    Teri Freeman · December 6, 2011

    Beautiful surroundings and impeccable service, but get there early if you want to dine on pizza and gourmet burgers for lunch outside. It can be tough to get a table. Read more · November 8, 2011
