Here it's all about the experience—one of the most indulgent, pampered meals you'll ever eat. Formally trained waitstaff attend to your every need in this temple of traditional Italian cuisine. A dramatic wine tower hovers over the main room; the plush private booths surrounding it are the best tables (call early to snag one). The taste circus begins with an amuse bouche. Pick between antipasti, crispy flatbreads, and wholesome soups before moving on to homemade pastas
and grilled meats. Absolutely try the butternut squash ravioli, an inventive version with citrus-tomato butter and truffled almonds. The evening ends with a complimentary nightcap. There is also a great prix-fixe menu.This is an upscale restaurant. Don't show up in flip-flops, jeans, or shorts; the staff may be too polite to turn you away, but you will be uncomfortable.
