Description: This is a new business. It well worth your time and energy to find this restaurant. It is located on the second floor. An elevator is available for those that find stairs too hard to handle. The food is fresh, and the outside atmosphere is like a home garden. It is very refreshing when the weather is below 90 degrees. Lunch time is perfect. They are open Mon. - Fri until 8:30.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The menu at dinner was the same as lunch and the food tasted like leftovers. Everything was over cooked and mushy. The chicken cattitore was extremely dry and the lasagna was served on a peice of brown lettuce. Presentation was very poor.I tried the butternut squash soup. It was over seasoned with pepper.the seating was outdoor patio furniture and was uncomfortable. The wine was mediocre and serving sizes were inadequate. Overall it was a dismall experience. Don't waste your time or money on this place.

“Mezzo Mezzo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Not impressed. I decided to try the iced CafeMocha. Couldn't taste the coffee because it was loaded with chocolate syrup and too sweet. Next visit I tried the regular hot coffee ... meh. I tried to order the meatball sandwich, but they ran out of meatballs - twice. So I purchased small meat sauce & bread. Lots of meat, but the oregano or basil was overpowering, and I didn't like it. It would be nice to sit up on the balcony Saturday mornings for coffee & pastry but they are not open Saturdays. So I dunno - maybe I'll try again - maybe not.
