The Filipponi's operate this fine dining spot, exhibiting one of their passions—fine Italian food. The modern brick storefront gives way to Old World charm and a large dark-wood bar. The interior walls of the dining room are painted to look like the outside of village buildings, creating a setting similar to dining al fresco. The menu is Northern Italian with less reliance on pasta and more on fresh vegetables, herbs, meats and seafood. Service is polished and attentive. The pasta is made in-house and prepared to order. Menu highlights include risotto with shrimp and butternut squash, roasted veal tenderloin in red wine sauce, and striped bass baked in rock salt. Sunday dinner themes aim to transport you in a culinary manner through Italy with every week featuring a different regional fare.
