I?d give this place more than 5 stars if I could?
I bought a $75 prix fixe gift certificate for 2 people from Buy With Me. So each of us had to pick an appetizer, an entr?e, a dessert and we shared a bottle of white wine.
We were seated immediately upon arrival. The atmosphere was cozy and the music was nice - not too loud. So it?s a good place to go to if you actually want to talk to your party.
The Pasta Carbonara I had was excellent. The sauce was rich and creamy and they used plenty of crispy bacon and parsley. My husband ordered the Tagliata alla fiorentina and it was amazing. The Angus sirloin steak was cooked to perfection. The arugula salad was nicely paired with soft goat cheese and some olives.
(I can?t comment on the desserts yet. We were in a hurry to catch a show, so we took them to go. The ricotta cheesecake does look amazing and I can?t wait to try it tomorrow.)
The service was extremely good ? friendly, but classy at the same time. We never had to look around for our waiter. He was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu, as well as their wines. He was also attentive and asked us if we wanted more fresh pepper, parmesan, etc. several times. The whole experience was so great that I tipped him over 25% on the full amount.
I?d recommend this place to anyone who likes to enjoy delicious food and professional service in a nice setting.
