LIKE A WARM HUG, a fine dining atmosphere of unique textures and materials embraces patrons and conveys the restaurant's story of family, love, and home-cooked Italian cuisine. Leveraging existing conditions both minimizes the impact on budgets and maximizes the customer experience. The stunning impact whips up a modern and sleek environment that not only pops, but appears larger than it is actually is by mixing dark tones with whites.
Other features infusing character and charm include:
Adding a wood ceiling treatment that appears to resemble exposed wood construction.
Defining the bar with vintage lighting and custom metal ceiling displays.
Mixing old world furniture with contemporary accents to create an exclusive destination that's quaint, yet trendy.
Using large-scale patterns inspired by the restaurant's logo.
A brick archway, resembling the ancient archways of Rome, further elevates the dining experience. Placing Edison-style lighting outdoors creates the ambiance of sitting in a classic Italian garden, in the hills of Tuscany.
