    The mushroom risotto and steak were out of this world. Susans Downfall is also a must have. Service was incredible, sit in Tony's section if you can.

    The prosciutto salad is deliciously well balanced. Get the sweetbreads if available; you won't regret it!

    This place is humiliation for me,unfortunately. Their menus are more expensive than any middle-class restaurant at Bay Area. I just liked shrimps on my risotto. The mojito I ordered was like a water.
