We ordered the 3-course tasting menu and it was delicious.The bluefish tartare with truffle was excellent, as were both pastas. Mains were scallops done unbelievably well with butter and some almonds, and pork "three... 更多
Best place to be is upstairs if you want some quiet, downstairs if you like the vibe. Food is Italian inspired, in a very good way. We ate really well, portions are not very generous, but this allows you to taste more plates. Absolutely recommended.

Our kids took us to dinner here. I believe that reservations are required, especially for the 3 course tasting. Our waiter was great in explaining how the tasting worked. We gave a few things that we didn't like and he relayed that to the chef. The bartender customized our cocktails and 3 out of the 4 were great. Each course... 更多
