Simply the best meal we have ever had in all of our travels around the world. The owner is the head chef who will, if asked, simply design your menu for you, with fresh simple ingredients and unbelievable results. Pear ravioli with alfredo sauce, wild boar pasta, filet mignon with balsamic reduction sauce, eggplant and swordfish carpaccio, artichokes wrapped in prosciutto, and soups, desserts and appetizers which are refreshingly innovative. End meal with grappa and espresso.The restaurant enjoys historic ambience in a building which housed a carousel merry-go-round.

Fabulous food and service - white truffles abound!
Recommended to me by a work colleague as "THE BEST meal" he had every had. Did not disappoint. I highly recommend the steak with balsamic sauce - rare cooked steak topped with sweet and tangy reduced balsamic. Fantastic wine selection - watching waiter aerate wine was greatly entertaining!
