Wish I loved it, I had high hopes, but it really missed the mark on so many points. Beginning with trying to make a reservation (3 attempts!). It's never a good sign when they already don't care about your business by not returning your calls...More

Wonderful in every way. The kitchen is open, so you can see the chef's work their magic. The food is awesome - had lobster ravioli as an appetizer, just delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Pleasant and trendy spot with some interesting takes on Northern Italian. Quality was very mixed and generally the selections are overpriced. Service friendly but a little to theatrical. Windows need coverings as the lights from cars passing by on a busy road are very distracting.

Upscale restaurant with friendly impeccable service and flashy customers. Small but beautifully presented portions. Not all dishes are equal in quality. Pricey. There are better value Italian restaurants in the area.
