Nice dinner

Very good food but pricy. Have not been here often. Kind of quaint and cozy ambiance inside. Really nice outdoor seating in summer.

This restaurant has excellent drinks, a great menu, and fabulous staff. This evening I was there with a friend just for a drink, but we got an appetizer, the bruschetta, to split. It was practically a meal in itself-- and they brought us two plates, which we didn't even ask for. The limoncello martini was excellent, ambiance lovely, and I... More

Have had dinner there several times always with excellent results. Groupon is a great buy here. Small, warm & intimate with large portions and delicious meals. Specials are creative, varied and tasty.

Food is delicious. It never disappoints and i love the live music they have at times. I will definitely keep going back. I usually order the shrimp pasta and i had their appetizer special last time based on the waitress's recommendations and it really good. I usually use a certificate from restaurant.com and it is always a great deal.

A small cozy restaurant. Good for couples or small groups. The food is standard fare. The pricing is on the high side . The service was very cordial and efficient. We have visited on several occasions and enjoyed the evening. Warm and friendly atmosphere.
