This restaurant on lower Westheimer is a gem. Sophisticated and unpretentious, it serves innovative Italian cuisine in a warm and inviting setting. Intimate, cozy, mahogany-lined rooms with a piano player add to the atmosphere. The five-course chef's tasting dinner highlights some of the menu's most creative dishes. The cioppino (fish stew) is outstanding, and the veal osso buco on a bed of saffron risotto is a wonderful rendition of this classic dish. Homemade limoncello liqueur is a delightful way to end the meal.
