Our Italian restaurant features a set menu with rotating weekly specials that showcase ingredients that are favored in Northern Italy - fresh meats cooked sous vide for maximum tenderness and flavor, seafood, and homemade pastas. We value authenticity. That’s why we make our own pasta and sauces. Whether you order gnocchi, lasagne, penne, fettuccini, Rotolo, rigatoni or ravioli, all of our pastas are freshly made in our from-scratch kitchen.
