“Eating at La Balena is like having a fantastic Italian friend invite you to dinner at his house. I remember an evening here with my mom and three children – we ordered a wonderful assortment of dishes to share family-style. The conversation flowed, there was so much laughter and warmth, not a cell phone in sight. It was a perfect moment in time that I will treasure forever.”
– Heidi Scheid, Executive Vice President
