fantastic italian execution (not the head sort) at this packed restaurant in chinatown. reservations much required - tables run out quickly, and the place is well popular even on weekdays. it's been lauded as a great place to grab some italian and lives up to that reputation (living up to reputation seems to be a problem these days), with good service and reasonably prices.
it spans that rather comfortable spectrum of cosy enough for date night but bright enough for family night, and the good food helps conversations flow.
I'm not a huge fan of the mostly carb-heavy cuisine, but this side of it is right up my alley. lots of fresh seafood and ingredients simply done up and plated without too much fuss, enough to show detail and attention, but not enough that my food gets cold.
I haven't mentioned service, and it was pretty good: just friendly enough without being unobtrusive, and they knew how to handle the crowds and seat people efficiently. price are very reasonable for the quality of food, though that statement holds truer for everything but the mains - and I'll be back to give some of their lauded pizzas a go.
Must tries: warm Mediterranean salad
- I also recommend this place for:
- Ala Carte, Business Dining, Children/Family, Girls Night Out, Hidden Find, Large Groups, Night Out, Relaxed, Vibrant/Noisy
