Dropped in to this place with a friend on Tuesday night after seeing a play at the nearby Powerhouse Theatre.

I had an excellent black truffle risotto and my friend enjoyed the lobster ravioli. Both were daily specials. Portions were a little on the small side but the quality was top notch.

Although it was close to closing time (around 9:40pm) when we went in, we were given very courteous service and not rushed. About the only negative was the very low light level in the dining room. My friend had to whip out a keychain flashlight to read the menu.

About $60 with tax and tip (we did not have any appetizers or beverages). Well worth it, though, and I hope to return.
