Not many people get the chance to dine in a restaurant's wine cellar, but at Vallozzi's, diners can book the underground space for a private dinner or dine in one of four other elegant areas. While enjoying award-winning wines, guests can feast on upscale Italian cuisine in Vallozzi's Classic dining room, which awards the eyes with hand-painted murals and romantic lighting. Alfresco dining options include Casa Elena and the patio, where guests can bask in the breeze without picnicking on an airport runway. Rounding out the quintet of rooms and boasting a handmade maple and olive wood bar, Rosso Bianco blends casual and chic with light-strewn tables, wine racks, and flat-screen TVs.
The chefs at Chef Dato craft elegant American entrees using ingredients purchased from local grocery stores, farmers, and bakers.

Scent is one of the main triggers of memory, so lots of memories arise when people pass by The Cookie Store. Here, bakers pull soft, chewy cookies from the oven, evoking childhood scenes of snack times. Bakers create candy-studded varieties such as Heath toffee, as well as classic recipes such as snickerdoodle and milk chocolate chunk. They even assemble giant cookie cakes frosted with custom messages for special occasions. In addition to cookies, staff use the ovens to bake four styles of brownie, and prepare cold, refreshing drinks such as frozen lemonade, smoothies, and frozen coffee.
Behind the quaint fa?ade of Mama C's Cafe, an impressive menu awaits.

The menu also shows a non-Italian side with options like chipotle wraps, buffalo chicken salads, and cheeseburgers.
