After reading all the reviews here, I had very high expectations of this restaurant and was praying it didn't disappoint as I was in charge of planning a birthday dinner. I made reservations the night before, the person I spoke to was friendly and informative. We were a little late but they were very accomodating.
The food took a little long to prepare, but it was probably because we had a fairly large group and they had to serve all the dishes together... while waiting, we ate the bread which was just divine... it was like eating cake, light and fluffy, perfectly prepared...
For an appetizer, I had the butternut squash soup and that was very tasty. The linguine with mussels, clams, etc.. was just wonderful as it had the right amount of seafood and it was perfectly cooked, sauce was great, I'm not a fan of pasta but this place serves some of the best pasta I've ever had, and I tried some of the dishes other people had, the gnochi, risotto, they were all very yummy.
The wine menu was terrific, they had a great selection.
Last but not least, the dessert, I had the chocolate pear which was just heavenly, the tiramisu was pretty good and the chocolate salami was good as well, a little too chocolatey for my tastes...
The service was wonderful, our server was terrific as was the other servers. Everyone was so friendly... and they're skilled at taking pictures as well.
The ambience is good.
Will certainly be back for more of the great food, especially the yummy desserts.
