My group of five had a wonderful dining experience at Naoki. The food and the service are smooth and unobtrusive. All the dishes are explained. One of our part was jarred by the spotify music, which ran on a loop from Bach, J.S. to Sorrento. She felt that there should have been Japanese music. Nevertheless, all felt it was a great dinner.

Third time visiting Metro Grill. Our dinners were delicious, our server was attentive and helpful even though every table was seated. There was a birthday in the room, nearly every diner joined in singing without a prompt from the staff.

About the restaurant
In 1999 our dream to let people experience our passion and love for food came true. Since then our menu has evolved year after year through additions of our creative recipes. We pride ourselves on having developed a contemporary Italian cuisine, which focuses on the quality of ingredients while revisiting traditional Italian flavors.

Open the rod iron gate to a lit dining area and be awed by the beautifully hand painted murals that bring you closer to our Italian culture.

From our wood fire pizza to our signature Black Angus NY strip steak, you'll discover that our dishes are a feast for all of your senses.

Bring your family and friends to join our family. Experience the pure pleasure of savoring a meal, down to the very last taste.
