First I want to say Im a huge seafood lover, and when I say the scallops are delicious and worth the money, Im serious. Tender in the center and slightly cooked on the top. It was my second time eating Risotto too and it was thick and creamy like I like it. To add the veggie element on the side, I asked for brussel sprouts. Not to forget the lobster pieces tucked inside the risotto gave it more flavor and bang to my plate. My girlfriend had the chicken parmesan and she nibbled off my plate as well. Needless to say, this restaurant made my clothes fall off when I got home and satisfied my tastebuds. Highly recommended if you want a great meal, followed by a long night of cuddles.
