The Talk

The Talk’s owners keep their family recipe book wide open, just like the thick steel bank vault in their dining area, which also boasts a wine bar made of polished granite and wraparound booths that hug tables. The culinary team uses the family recipes to prepare heirloom dishes, such as baked lasagna, eggplant parmesan, and pan-seared trout with sun-dried tomatoes. 

Sincere servers dart around the dapper dining area, jotting down orders, balancing trays, and seating private parties behind the vaulted door of the Vault room. In the dining room, guests lounge in beige booths and gaze at black-and-white photos or read the vinyl wall print that reads La Dolce Vita. The Talk also boasts awards such as "Best of the Best" in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 from Market Surveys of America, and was voted the number one choice for dinner by Reader's Choice Awards in 2011, 2013, and 2014.

Waitress was a sweetheart.

I have dined at The Talk many times and the food has been consistently good. The menu is a nice balance of American and Italian choices. There is always some interesting dinner specials besides what is on the menu. Although it is not on the menu they often make veal masala for me.
