Fabulous! Delicious food and good service.

This restaurant was recommended to us by several people - it's justifiably well regarded!

There are two dining areas; we were in the main room which was decorated with casual elegance. There were diners at only two other tables when we arrived; as the evening progressed the restaurant filled up. There was jazzy blues playing softly in the background.

Shannon and I started with the "Antipasti Rustico": fried cheeses, olives, artichoke hearts, cauliflower puffs - all delicious. For our primo we shared risotto with artichoke and shrimp - Fabulous! Really, really good.

As our shared secondo, we ordered the beef cooked with fruit crust and served with apple and pear slices. Oh. My. God. Melt-in-your-mouth Fantastic. We finished with a cheese and walnut plate; the cheeses were a little on the bland side. To be fair, we'd had a lot of flavors in our meal. It could have been that our palates were exhausted!

Service was very good; friendly and attentive but not overwhelming. (Although our waitress was dressed very casually ... with low rider jeans showing her belly roll!)

We had a bottle of Sicilian red wine and a large bottle of mineral water with dinner. Total for meal including wine: 66+tip.
