Great after the show

We recently stopped in after seeing a show at TheaterWorks. We had run into the theater straight from work. Since we had not had time to eat before the play, we were thrilled to have such a great dining option open late. Yummy food, friendly service, and great location for us! Thank you

Yes, I had a martini at a wine bar, and it was delicious!! The food - small menu - but plenty of options and my vegetable panini was perfect! The service was great, and quick as we were going to a show across the street. The waiter was attentive to this need, and made sure to stay on top of... More

Sandwiched amid yesterday's structures is this gem of a place to meet and dine before or after any Downtown Hartford event. Originally a destination for small plates of tapas, appetizers, and panini, patrons now are offered one or two entres each evening along with "to die for" risotto. What comes out of the small kitchen is often amazing and never... More

Went here on a Monday night. 3 course tasting menu was under 23 bucks. Wine was half price on bottles under 65. This pace was really good and the wine list was amazing. I am here for work, and will try to get back on Mondays going forward. Really great place.

Nice, quaint place around the corner from the XL Center. Great menu with many items on small plates for sharing. The wine list is also very good.

Though a bit limited in size, the selection is very ample. My lunch consisted of a delicious and spicy "Ecudorian Fish Soup" which was like a hot ceriviche of tuna and onions. Then the Capacola and procchuto sandwich was fantastic ... lots and lots of flavor.... price well worth the quality and service ....

My sister and I were in town for the Hartford Marathon and we stopped by this place for a drink and some snacks to kill time. We didn't know anything about it, but I'm glad we stopped. We just had a glass of wine and a few appetizers. If I wasn't running a marathon the next day, I probably would... More

Had lunch there today & ordered the Chicken Salad Tramezzini. It was delicious. They have a good wine selection and pleasant decorating. Overall, very pleasing.
