We tried to eat here a few months ago during "season" and didn't want to wait. So, we gave it another try recently and it would still be worth the wait. The bar only seats 8, too small and there are only 2 chairs to sit and wait inside; you have to wait outside - which could be too hot and humid during the summer. They open at 5pm and we got there at 6 - it was packed and we had to wait a bit (maybe 20 minutes), but we're glad we did. The restaurant isn't very big and of course, somewhat loud. The decor is that of an Italian village courtyard, surrounded by exterior building facades - very nice. It took a bit for the waiter to come over, somewhat disappointing but in the end the portions were generous and the entrees were excellent. If you don't see what you want on the menu, ask, as there are standard dishes you'd expect to see in an Italian restaurant - they just don't list them. There is a wait for this place, regardless the time you get there - which speaks volumes; but it's worth it!
