We have Americanized French and Italian food to the extent that that the thought of authentic French and Italian foods rarely even occur to me as being a reality or an option. So when I found this place, I was excited. I'm not sure how authentic it actually is, but it seems a lot more authentic than a lot of crappy places out there. I liked it a lot and would recommend it. The food was fresh and the place was clean. The only downside was that a lot of the patrons were the snooty sort. They are like wild animals though - if you don't bother them, they won't bother you.
