  • Why call it Butcher Block and serve nothing but noodles??
  • Duck alla alago dolce was delish!
  • The short ribs are delicious
  • Forego the New York Strip. For a meat place it was only average.
  • Don't leave without dessert. The Lemoncello Tiramisu is splendid.
  • kitchen sink wings are an awesome way to start out your meal.
  • No butcher. All pasta. Go to bar la grassa if you are thinking about coming here. Good service though.
  • Carpaccio is AMAZING!
  • I didn't get any free bread and the portions were way too small for how expensive it was.
  • Short rib of beef was awesome. Pasta was great. Fantastic service. Can't wait to go back
  • Beyond the amazing New York Strip... even without windows, the high ceilings make this place feel large and spacious!
  • They have espresso but not cappuccino? How does that work? Amazing food and wine though!
  • Steamed mussles= heaven
  • The Pan Seared Tuna is out of this world, the staff is friendly and the chef is from Rome. Dining here is quite the experience.
  • Best octopus I've ever had! The grilled octopus appetizer (when you can get it!) is two tender, juicy small whole octopi. Great appetizers, bring a friend or three and share them all.
  • The short ribs cacciatore are the most tender, flavorful pieces of meat you will find.
