Why We Like This Place

  • Rustic Tuscan-inspired décor, accented by distressed brick archways and an artful display of vintage wines, creates an intimate and private setting that’s perfect for an elegant affair.
  • Hand-crafted cocktails from their Italian mixology program are a fun way to personalize your event. Or take a tour through a specific region of Italy by choosing from their extensive wine list.
  • Menus are customized to fit the needs of your group, from a cocktail reception of passed hors d’oeuvres to family-style dining. With mouth-watering options like roasted chicken with creamy polenta and mushroom and fontina pizza, you’ll have a hard time deciding on your favorites!
