Luxurious and elegant, La Famiglia pampers guests with old-school Italian charm, classic decor, and tuxedoed waitstaff.
The Sena family serves an authentic taste of traditional Naples, with offerings such as antipasti and Vitello con Fontina (medallions of veal topped with fontina cheese in a white-wine demi-glace). Choose a glass or bottle of wine from the expansive selection dating from the 1940s. Save room to sample from the dessert cart, or enjoy a cheese course, sorbet, ice cream, or traditional biscotti.
Considering the steep price, La Famiglia is a place best reserved for special occasions, but this Italian indulgence makes for an unforgettable evening.
