The food is great and you can find many maditerranean plates and products. The service much better that the average in CT. Unfortunately the coffee was not so Italian . Generally an excellent choice for tasty and healthy food.

Nice Italian food with good flavors and service. The perfect restaurant if you do not feel like cooking and enjoy Italian cuisine. We had the veal which is an absolute must.
