Great local food with a special touch. Need to book ahead. we were not there during busy period but they were booked out and turned away at least 20 people the night we were there. Well worth a visit.

Highly rated restaurant held up to its reviews. Amazingly fresh ingredients used to prepare delicious plates. Our favorite was the spinach tart like appetizer. My husband loved the pasta w clams. We went back over and over as each plate we ordered was really great.
