It has become a favorite of ours that we will go back to again and again. Must have the Fig Ravioli (you can get it as an appetizer or a main). Great old school atmosphere with even better service.

I think he might originally be from the south. He was the most polite well mannered young man. From the minute we walked in he was very attentive. He was one of the best waiters I feel I’ve had in a long time. Can’t wait to go back. Everything was just excellent.

Luckily, the dinner chefs were already in & we were then offered the dinner menu. The lobster risotto was EXCELLENT, with a fresh lobster tail. The lemon sole very good. The shortrib pappardelle, a little disappointing because the meat was shredded & not in chunks. It's a byob. The servers & staff were super nice. I would certainly go back again for the lobster risotto.

The restaurant was relatively empty and the serving staff was not that busy. Though the staff was jovial and welcoming, they did not really pay attention to us. They rarely checked to see if we needed anything and often disappeared from the dining room. As a matter of fact, when it was time to pay the bill, the waitress placed the check and did not return. After waiting approximately 15 minutes, my husband actually walked into the kitchen to hand the waitress his credit card!
