The first impression you get of the place is elegant and inviting.The host stand area was very congested due to a large party that they were waiting to seat. Our waiter came to the table almost immediately after we were seated. He welcomed us with a smile and then asked if we had been there before, we told him we had and he welcomed us back. We said we would be ordering wine and he immediately suggested his favorite wine. He describe us a wine appeared very knowledge and told us the ranking among wine critics.At first we thought he wanted to sell a very expensive bottle, but we were surprised that a wine was in a mid-range price for a Tuscan wine. We ordered the Borgonero that he recommend. He offer us start with calamari but we declined. He told us about the specials and was very detailed in his description. We placed our order for salad and dinner. He was constantly coming to the table to check on us but was not overly bothersome. He started getting busy but made sure that we were taken care of at all times. The salads were presented in cold bowls. The greens were fresh, cold, and crisp. There were sun dried tomatoes, pears,cheese crumbles and onions scattered on the top. It was a nice combination of flavors in one bowl. The entrees were served in 23 minutes.The Lasagnetta was served on a large plate with a sauce rim and tomato with a basil leaf on the side. It was very hot and obviously just out of the oven. It was creamy and the chicken was tender. The artichokes were a contract in flavors to the tomato and cheese.The Bucatini pesca was a wonderful seafood montage. There was a calamari, clams in the shell, shrimp and fish in the sauce and it was served on a bed of pasta with a light tomato sauce, All the seafood was cooked correctly and it was an interesting combinations of flavors. The service was above average, the food was excellent and the ambiance was good. Salvatore was polite, courteous and always smile, overall, this was an exceptional visit!!.
