Based on friend's recommendation, we visited the restaurant for dinner on a Friday evening. The restaurant is very small, so reservations are a must. Quiet atmosphere with a much older, well-dressed crowd. Bruschetta appetizer was excellent! I was a little disappointed with my mussels and gnocchi, not enough seasoning. However, I will definitely go back. The service was excellent. Each... More

This is my husband and I's fave restaurant in BR. They make all their own pasta.. They don't have a freezer. Let me say that again. THEY DONT HAVE A FREEZER.. Everything is so fresh, and delicious and the service is always amazing. The gnocchi is a person fave- and always get the soup. Doesn't matter what it is. Just... More

I can't say that I've ever had a meal that didn't exceed my expectations! Always fresh and flavorful. I love how accommodating the kitchen is with my needs as a vegetarian. Great service and wonderful wine selection!

We went out with friends to this small intimate spot. It was our 4th visit, since we enjoyed it on the other occasions. The menu had changed, and our favorites were missing. We tried new items, and each was over seasoned. I will probably not go back for a long while.

Nowhere in the city will you find a restaurant like this one. From the outside, it's not what you'd expect. Small place that packs a lot of love and freshness into every dish. Everything made to order. Emphasis on local produce, which I appreciate. House-cured meats, fresh baked sourdough and fresh pasta - all made in house. Try the gnocchi... More

Upon reviewing the menu I was afraid that I couldn't eat there and maintain my successful weight loss. The chef came to my table to ask what my concerns and needs were. He made recommendations of dishes and suggested modifications that would meet my needs. The result was a wonderful and flavorful dish of fresh ingredients, some of which I... More
