    I was there once and really loved the food, Graziella is the owner/cook, it's excellent food with simplicity and freshness in mind. La Montée is more spectacular, as in presentation and mix of flavors and textures. You can't go wrong with those 2.

      I agree with superbossmom, you can't go wrong with these two. I've been there twice to each and had a wonderful time. Service, food and wine are very good.

      If I had to choose between La Montée and Graziella, I would go to La Montée.

        Thank you, I checked out La Montee's website and it looks very interesting. Any recommendation on what to eat there? Everything sound good. Is is a better option to go with wine paring?

      If you do go to Graziella, try their handmade gnocchi. They make them with ricotta instead of potatoes, a traditional Emilia-Romagna way of doing it. Chef Graziella also makes amazing desserts. The semi-freddo is to die for!

        I went to Graziella for lunch a few days ago, and although it did not wow me, I found the food very good. It is definetely very close to home-cooking and I found that refreshing and interesting. The stuffed grilled calamari entree was great (very homey) and my main course was a plate of ravioli (stuffed with aragula and some cheese - I don't remember which type, but it was very good) in tomato sauce, very well balanced and tasty.
        For dessert, I had the lemon-pie (home-made) and definetely liked it. It was however not unanimous at my table as another person found it too eggy...
        For the price, lunch at $25 pp for entree and main course, I will go back.
