This fine Italian restaurant features an elegant Neoclassical dining room with high ceilings, chandeliers, and Roman columns—all very romantic. The refined Italian-inspired menu makes a welcome break from all things Southern, though local seafood still features prominently. The crab cakes, oysters, and clams are all good, but I would opt for the seafood fettuccini or delicious clams and linguine in a garlic-white-cream sauce. The building was constructed around 1871 to serve as the Germania Fire House (operated by German-born volunteers).
