The pasta is incredible, in fact the whole meal was perfect. We started with the amuse bouche of an anchovy on top a buttered crostini - very delicious. The excellent prosciutto antipasti was huge, and we combined it with the lovely light seasoned arugula hazelnut salad - both went well together. The bread and breadsticks were tasty, too. We shared... More

We found this gem hearing that the pasta they make (a angel hair style) made it to the front of Gourmet magazine and boy it was AMAZING! We did a wine pairing with every course and tried a few different dishes. If I went back I would just get the procuitto and the pasta they are known for. The rabbit... More

Everything we ordered here was awesome. The salad with hazlenuts was fresh, with a perfect lemony light vinagarette - it was really an excellent kick off to the rest of the meal. The fresh pasta with butter and sage was divine. My husband had a dinner special, a pasta with rabbit ragu and chickpeas, which was very good but not... More

There are places that just fit instantly, like Cinderella's slipper, and this is one. I felt immediately comfortable in at our table, and then the parade of simple, elegant and perfectly executed flavors began. I am still thinking about the parsnip flan, the lamb and mint ravioli, the rabbit meatballs and the rice gelato with chamomile. If there weren't so... More

The thin pasta with butter and sage was great. That alone is reason enough to go. They don't have a big menu at all though, so be careful with bringing picky eaters.

We took our time and spent the big bucks to try as much as possible. The food was wonderful, watching the guy make pasta was fun, and our server was very knowledgable. A must go!

This little restaurant is a definite "need a reservation" but is worth the extra effort. The atmosphere is simple but charming. We were able , from our table to watch the angel hair pasta being made. Our 8 year old daughter was intrigue. The pasta was outstanding, especially the ragu. Lucky us, our server brought us the wrong pasta ,... More

The food was definitely the reason for coming. The service was okay but not intuitively stellar. We had to chase them down a bit for glasses of wine as well as hello and goodbyes upon entering and leaving. The staff did not seem very experienced. The kohlrabi and apple salad was unique and the highlight was the pasta with butter... More
