The restaurant is in a New Haven location you would not expect, but when you walk through the doors, be prepared! No only is the greeting most welcoming, but the atmosphere is very warm and inviting. When crowded it can be noisy. The food was excellent. The salmon dish was the best I ever had. this is my second visit... More

I had to literally get up to allow a woman seated behind me, get to the restroom. There are 2 dining areas, one is an open floor plan... More

As an italian lady, I can say this restaurant is the best so far! Great food, fresh vegetables, fresh fish, and a handsome chef who greets you politely! We`re going back to eat there the incoming week.

Haven't been back to New Haven much since graduating from Yale, so I really wanted to have a special dining experience when an old friend and I arranged to meet there for the day.

Heard so many favorable comments about this restaurant, decided to take my friends who definitely wanted "something Italian", Thought I had been to most every popular one in this area, including the ones in the Italian neighborhood of New Haven, but I just added this one to my list. Had the best sea bass ever, and my associates selected everything... More
