Two couples arrived at 4pm for dinner before a concert. It was too late for lunch and too early for "Today's Specials" but they had a few of yesterday's specials. I had yesterday's daily risotto special, very good. My husband had the fusilli tartufati and he thought the artichokes were overcooked. One friend had tagliatelle verdi alla bolognese which she...

I love this intimate little restaurant on the edge of downtown. I normally look for something on the menu with swordfish because they do it so well. Actually, everything is pretty delicious. The decor is European and the ambiance is casual. The crowd runs the gamut from families with children to young couples to the older set, and seems to... More

The best carpaccio I have ever had. Great lunch deals and nice location one block off State. Casual environment and nice dining area. I try to stop in for lunch at least once a month!

The "Pollo nel Coccio" (Terra-cotta baked chicken with porcini mushrooms, garlic, tomato and red wine sauce.) is so good, we have enjoyed it on four visits and can't seem to branch out onto other main dishes. We also enjoy a side of the white beans. The best beans we have ever tasted. Enjoy! You'll be back.
