Since its foundation in 1993, locals have remained loyal to this romantic, softly lit restaurant, which serves as a retreat for those who are weary from the mad rush to SoBe's in restaurants. The place is consistently creating sophisticated dishes derived from family recipes. The dishes are brimming with Northern Italian tradition updated via upscale touches - as the restaurant has expanded in size over the years, so has the ambition of its offerings. Here you may enjoy the carpacci that are distinctive, including yellowfin tuna with fennel, pink peppercorns, and farm raised Baerii caviar; and seared lamb carpaccio accompanied by crispy goat cheese rolls or an almond-crusted Hudson Valley foie gras finished with lavender and port sauce. Restaurant’s pastas and risotti are hearty and innovative, seafoods simply stunning - enjoy Artic char, a salmon-like freshwater fish served with lemon, asparagus and truffle zabaglione. Or try the Smithfield pork tenderloin filled with smoked mozzarella in a Madeira, sage and amarene cherry sauce. There is an impressive list of Italian wines, some easier on the wallet than others, and oversees the stellar service in this rustic Italian gem.
