One of my favorite italian restaurants in the city.  Service is always professional and courteous. We went last evening without my sister and brother in law who are from North Carolina. They loved it, too!

Went there with my family last night and the food was amazing. They were accommodating to each of us-- a vegan, vegetarian, omni and my 9 yo daughter.

Always one of my favorite places to go for martinis but recently I have been here twice within a few days due to the disappointment of another establishment.  If you love dirty martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives as much as I do then this is your place! The sweeter, fun martinis are delicious as well! I have never had a dish tha ... read more

One of the only restaurants in Buffalo that actually has brunch on a Saturday! I think other restaurants should follow suite and actually have brunch on both weekend days because brunch is always a good idea but alas...We didn't have reservations and got there around 11:30 and had to sit at the bar. Not a big deal since I was just wi ... read more

waitress was very friendly and attentive but not overly attentive. Everything came out at an appropriate pace and was so delicious.
