This was quite a nice discovery after a few desperate tries to find a nice place to eat. Situated in the basement, the overall ambiance is intimate, and lively. The pasta is best enjoyed with a pesto sauce. We went two nights in a row, and the pesto sauce was fantastic.

One is the hostess, then an all around aid. The second serves. The third is behind the bar, and the last one cleans. All of them good humored, energetic and bring the best mood to the area. We wanted 1st courses and Antipasti. All was just lovely. The IPA on tsp was just the obe to add. Essential.

For many years dinner at this cozy, inviting restaurant was something to look forward to. About a year ago my wife and a group of friends went there full of expectations of past positive experiences. What a huge disappointment! Our order was forgotten and when it finally arrived over an hour later it was dreadful. The staff appeared in total... More

This is my favorite restaurant when I visit my daughter. A nice, quaint place with excellent food and service. They serve fresh foods from locals prepared to perfection. We've eaten a variety of dishes over the years and are never disappointed.

My husband and I have enjoyed wonderful meals at this restaurant for many years. We enjoyed the Chicken Saltimbocca this past week and it surpassed anything we've had yet! A succulent chicken breast with seared prosciutto with fontina over fresh pasta with sweet onions, baby shitake mushrooms, fresh spinach for color, and bathed in a wonderful Marsala cream sauce.

My wife and i had an excellent meal there. I had the duck breast which was delicious. My wife had the salmon which was good too. I would definitely go back again.
