There was 4 of us dining, checked the menu & there was 4 selections on the menu of the 3 course menu, so we thought we could try all options. They were all great, can't remember every item but the entree of smoked tuna was melt in your mouth & the carpaccio was delicious. The primi stand outs were risotto & porcini cappelleti, last the secondi were the lamb shoulder & grilled swordfish. But every dish was wonderful & tasty & don't forget the cannoli is a must. We were greeted by Alessandro & he explained his dishes to us & was so friendly that we even given some of his homemade Limoncello, that if it was a option you'd just drink that! Had a unforgettable tasting experience that we enjoyed & very well priced too!

The small, separate area, which was more fine dining is gone. It’s now all bar service. I was surprised they still accepted a reservation. Food was excellent, very small servings of the specials which were served with no sides.
