    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.

    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++.

    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.

    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.

    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
