We love eating outdoors whenever possible and this restaurant is right on Third Street downtown. I started out with the Fried Calamari - crisp and tasty, Caesar Salad was crunchy and fresh with just enough garlic and anchovie. Then onto my favorite - Pappardelle. Pappardelle noodles with mushrooms, pancetta, spinach mascarpone cream sauce, a generous portion, a real deal for $19.00. Didn't have room for dessert this time but try the gelato. Others in my group had the more traditional Italian dishes: Eggplant - they loved it. We booked Open Table and the table was ready within minutes. It can be noisy and the service suffers a bit "in season." Don't give up, it is a really good restaurant overall and we will continue to go there.
