May be it's the heralded authentic Italian cuisine or perhaps the often talked about wine list (winner of the Wine spectator award from 2001-2009). Certainly the Hirschfield's adorning the walls can't help but draw attention. The Cicciolina, Tiber & Baccus rooms can be combined/divided to accommodate parties as few as 10 or as many as 80 seated or up to 125 for a cocktail reception.

What we want you to experience is that sense of surprise when you taste something so new, so exciting, so comforting, so delicious, you think, "wow" - and then it's all gone. We want the peak of sensation on the palate to be all that you feel.
