  • Napkins. They do a pretty great job on this. They are cloth and they wrap the silverware in it even!!!! Kind of feel like a KING. A must visit.
  • The pork tenderloin with risotto is the best thing on the menu hands down!
  • The Bistro Bellini is delicious!
  • I don't know who Bistro Vita is, but damn do they know how to grill an onion.
  • Don't be fooled by the uninspiring photographs of this place. It's a pretty big place with great service, great food, and a lot of variety on the menu.
  • We had the restaurant week tasting menu and it was incredible. Portion size was perfect. Favorites were my gnocchi, the pork three ways, and my boyfriend's tuna crudo
  • Paella!!!!!
  • The bar tenders are the bomb digity, yo. And aaron is one sexy server.
  • There's always a seafood stew special, and it's always good.
  • Pricey but delicious and accommodating
  • A great farm to plate local experience and wonderful martini bar!
  • While it's still on the menu - try the curried vegetables appetizer; utterly delicious.
  • Beautiful building, renovated manufacturing plant. Love the ambiance and the Mediterranean menu.
  • Beautiful place, such a wonderful attention, tasty food, great drinks...!!! Definitely an option if you want to have an amazing time!
  • Good food but should show $$$ or $$$$.
  • I wouldn't recommend going here if you have food allergies. Menu doesn't list all ingredients.
  • Decent Italian food. Enjoyed the paella, bruschetta, polenta, and tomato basil soup. Good place for a team lunch.
  • Fantastic Duck Ravioli and great service. My girlfriend and I go here fairly often.
  • Mushroom pizza!
  • Martinis. Yup.
