Great food, cramped tables, a little pricey.

It was a bit pricey for what they offered and the table space was incredibly cramped. That said, the meals that my wife and I ordered (both baked pasta dishes) were absolutely delicious!

If you want an intimate dining experience thisis your place. Seems to me that there are about 20 more seats in there than there should be. Very cramped.

Quaint little Restuarant, dynamite food. A little something for anyone. Drinks are good, bread very tasty. Desserts are also a not to miss.

Everything was great, very friendly staff, the atmosphere is really cool. The food is stunning, my girlfriend and I are still taking about it. Only downside is it's definitely pricey however I got over it after having the food.

We love this place. A tiny restaurant and bar with fantastic pasta (my favorite is the puttanesca) and hot rock seafood, chicken or beef that you cook right at your table. One of our favorites.

My girlfriend really enjoyed her seafood risotto, so on that basis I would have given it four or more stars. But my gnocchi was extremely bland and obviously pre-packaged. Salad was somewhere in the middle. Friendly staff, good wine and beer selection. Choose entrees wisely and ask for salad dressing on the side and you should be fine.

I have to tell you I was craving pizza and boy did they deliver. We ordered the 4 cheese pizza and it was out of this world. Staff was friendly and food was great. My husband had the seafood salad for an appetizer and really enjoyed it. We are going back again, we have to try every pizza on the... More

Stopped by for lunch randomly and the food was surprisingly good and there were lots of it. Pretty small crowded place though. Couldn't imagine what it'd be like if it were full.
