Patrons are welcomed to an open-air courtyard that leads the way to three dining areas, each offering a specific ambiance that will accommodate any size party.
Whet your appetite with signature dishes like Capesante Di Viareggio, Astice Mille Romagna and Filetto Di Manzo Rossini from Executive Chef Thomas Stewart.
