This is my first five star rating ever and I believe it's justified! Had a goodbye dinner with some colleagues at this restaurant and the entire experience was magnificent.
The service was excellent. We had the private guest room near the back of the restaurant and our two servers were extremely attentive, personable, knowledgeable on both food, wine, and various cultures, and generally a great pleasure to deal with. Francesco made it a point to not only drop by to say hello to us, but to all the other tables in the restaurant as well.
The food... delicious. I had the grilled calamari salad, halibut cheek fillets, and pear sorbet, while the others tried the various pastas and seafood dishes on the menu. Everything we had was stellar!
The ambiance is more towards the romantic side, as the house lights are quite dim and there are ample candles throughout the restaurant.
The musicians were not in on this night, so we didn't get a chance to hear Francesco sing - which I hear is great, as he is an opera singer.
The pricing is on the high-side, but putting it in context (fine dining establishment) - the quality, service, and ambiance we received - the value is there. I definitely recommend this restaurant when you feel like treating yourself and your partner to a special evening on a special occasion!
