AAA Inspector Notes
Beautiful architectural enhancements, accented elegantly with the drive-through portico, create a striking visual impression when you arrive. The dining room is steeped in rich woods, plush fabrics, a 30-foot wine tower and intricate design patterns, which set the mood for romance. The menu focuses on Italian cuisine while utilizing high-quality foods and fresh ingredients. Menu selections include Prime beef carpaccio, veal agnolotti, mushroom risotto, veal chop and pork osso buco. Imported and house-made cheeses, regional wine selections, homemade pastas and prix-fixe menus are customary here. Service is carried out by a skilled team of staff members and is often flawless in delivery. A live pianist performs Wed.-Sat., which further enhances an already elegant ambiance. To maintain the refined aura, the restaurant requests that all diners dress to impress. This is often referred to as an experience rather than just a meal.
