  • Bring your big boy credit card.
  • Beautiful mosaic tile floor. Lights in the tables are a cool touch.
  • Fancy cocktails pair well with dishes such as braised rabbit, coal-fired pizzas, and osso bucco. Oh yeah, the interior is quite stunning too.
  • Cocktail? Go "La Basilica". Beautiful environment, and excellent management both downstairs (at the bar), and upstairs (at the restaurant). Great spot for an intimate date.
  • Strong cocktails, go for a Manhattan.
  • Best mojito of my life
  • The pancakes and bacon are so delicious !
  • So far the service here sucks. No bread has been offered and they just brought me something I did not order. Server put in wrong order.
  • So Mom's not the buffet type? Don't sweat it. This a la carte brunch menu brunch has eggs Benedict Florentine, grilled lamb chops and mascarpone cheesecake.
  • nice environment
  • Penny Pollack says, "I suspect the veal loin wrapped in bacon sat under a heat lamp and toughened a bit, but flavor was spot-on."
  • meatballs pomodoro grass fed beef, berkshire pork, pomodoro, parmigiano reggiano, foccacia)
  • chicago world fair inspired cocktails
  • lost somewhere at sea (don q spice, diplomatico 12, plantation pineapple, carpano antica, espresso bean infused cointreau, smoke)
  • Easy, friendly, fun and good food!
  • Food is good. Hotel prices. Service is great but slow - not a place to go if youre in a rush.
  • Good drinks, limited but excellent menu
  • Si te gusta el vodka pide el coctail el Angelo, muy rico!
  • Intimate atmosphere, great cocktails.
  • Really nice bartenders. Save for the arugula (I don't like the bitterness), great carpaccio with capers.
