Try the delicious Gnocchi a La Bruno, with a sauce made of Vodka. Pastas serve two. For entree go for calabresa bread.

The atmosphere is charming, nice although unseasoned service seems to be the norm even in holiday season with a full house and a waiting line outside in the veranda. The wine list is ok and the storage of the wine bottles seems to be amateurish at... More

Primarily Italian dishes, and all of it's fresh. Great appetizer dishes, from thin crust pizza to melt-in-your-mouth carpaccio, main dishes include a variety of polenta dishes (very good portions, enough for two), chicken and beef dishes. I'd highly recommend the Mignonette Cafe de Paris with your choice of freshly made pasta. If you like your beef rare, you REALLY need... More
