The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Italo is in a great location. The service was spectacular and the food was fresh and not at all typical! There were many interesting options and I wish I had time to go back and try them all!

This could be a tale of two restaurants, one of them capable of delivering outstanding cooking, the other, well, run-of-the-mill. I had high hopes for my octopus carpaccio. It arrived resembling a kind of gelatinous doily, vaguely fishy, and placed on top of a crisply...More
