We made it cozy for you

Quote

This is the kind of place that people go to again and again, the place that they think of as a home away from home. This is a restaurant where the waiters know you, you know the menu, and the chef knows your tastes.

Dining

Pizzas are thin crust, pastas are homemade, the bread is crispy and always hot, the Ossobuco all Milanese is slowly brazed and pretty much everything in the menu is carefully crafted by Chef Domenico Salvatore. In the open kitchen you will spot him rolling dough and in the dinning room GM Sorin Costache will great you like you are at his house.
