I have only eaten here once with three others. All our meals were excellent as was the service. I had the cioppino and it was among the best I've ever had. They were quite willing to modify ingredients because of an allergy.

Cozy, intimate place with excellent food. They do not take reservations, so get there early or prepare to wait. It will be worth it! Parking is a little tight in the area. We found spaces on the side streets. Great appetizers, food and dessert.

Thought this would be a good stop on a blustery day. As we walked in, we were assaulted by a bad odor. Having worked in food service, it smelled to me like an unclean mop had been used. Went into bar anyway - and sat down. Bartender gave us barely a glance and continued her conversation with another guest. My... More

Don't miss this italian restaurant if you like thin crust pizza with just the right amount of cheese and savory tomato sauce. The salads are also awesome all in a lovely setting. If you can sit outside on their porch. Would go back in a minute.

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.
