  • Calamari, beef tartare, *duck pasta, and the gnocchi was very light which was interesting. Overall 8/10.
  • What a treat! Highly recommended for leisurely lunch midweek. All the things, no rush.
  • Bar nuts on Food Networks Best Thing I Ever Ate. Fresh out of the oven at 4:45, free at the bar in the afternoon with a drink. A little spicy from cayenne
  • Theres a reason that this place is a classic. Excellent food. Precise execution. Love it here.
  • Always a classic. Lobster pasta is delicious.
  • Been wanting to come here for a while. Brunch was great! Start with duck fat tots and pb&j donut. I had the eggs and merguez (very medi feel) and mama had omelette. We loved!
  • Every bit as good as you expect. The prix fixe dinner is a great value. I loved the warm octopus & sausage appetizer and the NY strip steak.
  • Ask for Brett at the bar! Hes AMAZING and can make a KILLER cocktail!!
  • All of the pastas are incredible! Also the baked Alaska is delicious.
  • This restaurant has been around for 30 years and is a longtime local favorite spot. Try the lasagna!
  • Gnocchi was to die for. Steak with mashed potatoes was also excellent. A little spotlighty lighting if youre in the main room
  • Service was ber professional and attentive. Kudos to their team as the restaurant as this is a no tipping establishment. Beautiful decor but felt a bit stiff. Gnocchi are a standout.
  • Went here one night with bff as a splurge. Superior to the former location; the space is incredible. Heirloom tomato app was delicious, the Gnocchi ranks as a top ten entree. Pricey but worth it!
  • Longtime local favorite spot, fun vibe and easy bites.
  • Pastas like candele tubes sweetened with carrot and spiced with Fresno chilies and pappardelle ribbons slick with a rich sugo of duck and chanterelle are worthy castmates of that famed gnocchi.
  • Accordingly, this non-tipping and market-driven restaurant features a diverse mix of American, Italian, and French-inspired dishes, including the Berkshire Pork Chop and Ricotta Gnocchi.
  • The Ricotta Gnocchi literally made my husband cry, because it was so wonderful.
  • Chef Carmen Quagliatas burger is a classic, and a feat in dry-aging. A blend of short rib and brisket results in a patty that is juicy yet distinctly beefy.
  • Place runs like a well oiled machine: plenty of staff, all very professional but not stiff. For the price, the food is great: lunch doesn't have to be much more than $60 including tip. Polenta app!
