Our first (and only) non-Mexican food stop. This was also a past favorite of my boss's and according to her, it's changed a bit. The beautiful outdoor patio remains the same - but because of the mini-dust storm we weren't able to eat there. The inside was fancy - a bit too fancy. Aside from the outdoor patio, I didn't feel like this place was overflowing with character. The menu is a little pricey - a mix of Italian and American. You've got your salads, pizzas, pastas, chicken, fish, and lamb to choose from. I'd recommend the wood-fired pizzas for sure - the smell of the oven outside the restaurant lured me in from the parking lot. They've got a good wine selection but I noticed they weren't particularly up on their cocktails and martinis (one of the things that has apparently changed). Overall, I'd suggest checking this place out on a nice, weekend night when you can sit out on the patio and enjoy some live music - and the view!
