I'm not going to write a detailed review on each dish but everything was fantastic. Charcuterie plate was top notch and included; pork terrine, chicken liver mousse, sopressota, mortadella, pancetta.

Roast pork was tender and juicy, gnocchis, rabbit pasta, cavatellis in fontina cheese sauce all hit the spot, octupus salad was OK a bit too much tarragon/mint for my taste.

Tiramisu and gelato sadwiched in a brioche also stood out.

Stefano was running plates and told me that the only things not made in house are the gelatos and bread, so Philippe Mollé is wrong about "sorbets maison" in his review.

Mike Forgione was also there making sure the plates were going out to his liking but not actually in the kitchen. The bill for the three of us came to $200 with tax not including tip for all the above plus 2 drinks, a beer and a glass of wine which I found more than acceptable for the quality of the food.

Compare this to my review for Atelier Argentine which worked out to the exact same per person (no dessert at AA) and you see why I was disappointed with that AArgentine meal.
