We would like to thank everyone that participated in assisting us during this exciting and reinvigorating moment. For those of you who are not aware, we will be changing the name of our establishment to Prova. Please know that ownership, staff, food ideology, incredible service, cutting edge culinary concepts and most importantly quality of the product, will remain the same. Changing our name will not be an overnight event but rather a gradual process that will occur over the next several months. This name change is the culmination of our renaissance over the last few years to what we are today, a place to enjoy a unique and excellent dining experience at a reasonable cost.
Again, thank you to all who have helped us during this wonderful period and to all for dining with us. As always, don't forget to come in and try it...Or as Nonna says "Prova!"
Franco & Gianni Abballe
