The white bean dip and calamari are both exceptional. The pizza was thin crust and memorably wonderful on a rainy evening. Last but certainly not least, Martin was a superb waiter.

Small quaint little place with quality service. The food was well prepared and cared for in its presentation. They take the time to prepare each meal. Good wine selection and you can tell this is where the locals frequent. Seems everyone there knew one another. The staff was attentive and took great care of us. I'll be saving this place... More

The place was crowded on a Friday evening (also a home football weekend), but we were seated fairly soon. This a great, clean neighborhood Italian restaurant (although a bit loud when full due to lots of hard surfaces and little except patrons to absorb the sound) in an area featuring a half-dozen small eateries, and is well worth the trip...

My husband and I made reservation via Open Table. Service was so so. The guy that filled our water was on top of his job. We started with Caprese Salad and the mussels. Both were good. I wished I would have stopped there. When they showed up my husband ask about his beer that still had not arrived. Entrees were... More

The ambiance was pleasant, but the food was atrocious. The Olive Garden would have been better . I was also sick the next day after eating at this dump!

We often stop by this lovely neighborhood restaurant for Sunday brunch. It seems to be the perfect spot for us, never too busy or crowded, friendly staff, and dependable food. The last time we were there, my husband and I split a Cesar salad and mushroom pizza. The salad was nice, but the pizza was outstanding! We will be back....
