It is difficult to categorize this restaurant, because our dining experience in it was extremely mixed. The space is gorgeous, perfect for a quiet evening, although the tables are a little too closely spaced. The wine selection was very respectable. The service was EXCELLENT--attentive but not intrusive, solicitous but not annoying, accommodating, knowledgeable, able to offer alternatives, and generally close to perfect. The food--the portions were so tiny, that after a three-course meal, I was ready for a nice-portioned dinner. My morning egg with lentils offered a wonderful garnish of lentils and an extremely undercooked and cold egg on top. My rabbit came in 4 ridiculous, literally quarter-sized portions of practically raw rabbit. Seriously, the meat was undercooked to the point of being cold. But the sweetbread ravioli that came with it were heavenly. My husband's pork included a spectacular pork belly, an interesting in-house made warm sausage, and a card-board consistency, flavorless pork loin over mediocre chickpeas. My dessert included perhaps the most original item I have ever tasted--black pepper icecream, which was amazing, served over very good pear and pecorino combination served with a terrible, dry, tasteless biscotti styled cake. I think the restaurant suffers from a definite lack of balance in the kitchen and needs to make a better effort to put together its ingredients.
Pros: service, desserts, wine list, quality of ingredients
Cons: some of the food, portion size
