This is a wonderful little restaurant, very classy. The food is very expensive when comparing to other Italian restaurants but you will notice immediately why it's expensive. The food is unbelievably good! The staff, are Italians from Italy.

Favorite Dish: I have enjoyed dinner a few times here. The appetizers are very small portions but delicious. Have had the Beef Carpaccio with capers and parmesan cheese and the smoked breast of duck with red and yellow beet salad. The Torellini Di Zucca al Burro e Salvia is fantastico! Tortellini stuffed with pumpkin, cream-butter sage sauce. Yum! I have also had the Mezzelune d'Anatra con Salsa di Funghi, Marscapone e Mertilli. Half-moon ravioli stuffed with duck, mushroom, marscapone and blueberry sauce. Double Yum!
