Under the new kinder and gentler ownership of Jerry and Barbara Snyderman many changes have been made. Management, servers and chefs go out of their way to welcome everyone as if you truly are family. This outpost of refined Italian cuisine has long been known for its gargantuan portions and that hasn't changed...from the big bowl of perfectly steamed mussels in a white wine broth to the freshly baked bread, shrimp parmigiana and braised lamb shank, every dish is expertly seasoned cooked and plated. Save room for dessert. The Creme Brulee is an exercise in delicious decadence and the flourless chocolate cake is dark, dense and intensely satisfying. Expect to take home leftovers.
