    Portions are the perfect size. Gnocchi and steak are both superb. The beignets for desert are pillow like fluffy paradise in your mouth.

    A pricy yet tasty Italian restaurant. All of the bread appetizers are excellent. The spicy king crab pasta is a must.

    Order family style and share! Don't miss the lobster caprese, zucchini fritti, king crab pasta and eggplant parm and dessert! The rice pudding gelato is amazing. Our waiter was great too!

    Small plates. Between two girls, we had 6 items and spent $32 each with tip. Start w/ meatballs, Brussels sprouts, pizzette then get cavatelli with beef and pork ragu, the lobster risotto and tortufo

    Food quality and service has been great since Day 1. Perfect spot to bring out of town visitors or for a date night. Make reservations at least a few weeks in advance.

    Amazing atmosphere. Great staff. And decent food. The appetizer and pasta selection are excellent. Main course is average. But it feels so alive with energy and staff is so helpful

    Somewhat over-hyped. Had the lobster caprese, octopus, and crab with squid ink spaghetti. All good, but lacking that special something. Sat at the bar and had an excellent and attentive waiter.

    Delicious food! Great service! Really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Portion sizes are small according to American standards, but still very good!

    Great service, decor, and food. My favorite dish on the menu is the Chicken Liver Crostini, but everything I've tried is really great. Get the risotto with shaved white alba truffles!

    Lobster caprese salad was great. Swordfish was phenomenal. Great scene. Played early 2000s house music the entire time.

    If you have a group of 9 or more you can do family style which is a great way to try a lot of different dishes. We left stuffed!

    Order tapas style so your party can try many of the entrees. Everything I've had from here, especially the short rib pappardelle, was excellent!

    Brussels sprouts are very tasty and very well prepared. Good veggie option for all the cheesy, carb-y menu.

    The short rib is delicious. Garlic bread is also a must have. Love the ambiance here and the service is great too!

    If they have the Pizzette with heirloom spinach, fontina cheese, 600 day prosciutto, GET it! Very small portion so get two for the table.

    The meatballs are a big draw at this trendy spot. The marinara sauce is light but flavorful. Ditch the truffle garlic bread, tastes nothing like truffles.

    Must order the klug peaches with pistachio cake and gelato! But skip the coffee-I ordered decaf and it must have been old because it was undrinkable.

    Ask for their sommelier to help with the wine selection. The Pumpkin Agnolotti will rock your world. 👍
