Absolutely the best dining experience
I have lived on the beach for years, and am well aware of the gimicks and shortcuts that have unfortunately become embedded in dining culture here. This is not one of those places. This is where my boyfriend and I go when we celebrate something, because when you're there- everything is special.
The service is amazing. The staff is attentive. They speak of the dishes on the menu with the passion of true foodies. I have had many, but my favorites are the proscuitto sage stuffed chicken, veal osso bucco, and the seafood linguine. I can't get past the seafood linguine- it is such a cohesive dish. The sauce made from what have to be the most gorgeous tomatoes (no jars of tomato sauce here!) and the seafood so fresh it crunches. The dish easily serves two and I've split it- which they are more than happy to do for you, on many occasions.
My perfect night out is here, where they will greet you as if they know you, sit you at a table where you get a great view of Lincoln Rd, start you with fresh baked bread, tomatoes with a hint of basil, and an extensive menu highlighting some of Italy's best. Order the seafood linguine, a bottle of Villa Antinori Toscana, and the tirimisu. You wont be rushed, you will be taken care of, you will leave glowing. You can thank me later.
I should mention here that I am a chef. I appreciate the intricacies of the menu, the dishes, the wine list, and the service with a trained eye. Yet when I am there, it is the fact that you're not just eating food, you're enjoying a dining experience that makes it such a pleasure.
