We went on a very busy evening and had to sit at the bar right near the door and the cold air coming in. It did not dampen our experience one little bit. (The staff were always right there to close the door when someone came in.) In fact, sitting at the bar was a plus, because the woman taking care of us was exceptional. She clearly loved her job, the restaurant and the food and her enthusiasm was contagious. But it was easy to be enthusiastic because the food was just wonderful. The wild boar ragu with gnocchi was, in our waitress' words, "insane". Every bite was delightful. The chard stem gratinata is one of those dishes for which the whole is way more than the sum of it's parts. Incredible. I loved that we could purchase "wine flights", 3 (almost) half glasses, thereby experiencing different Italian wines with our meal. We were too full for dessert, but we were reassured we could come for coffee and dessert at any time. I just loved this place (so did my husband.)
