Just ate here this evening for the first time. We took a chance based on all the great reviews from all others on this site. I cannot tell you how absolutely wonderful it was. The place is not at all where you'd expect, let alone what you'd expect. It's small, and well kept. The staff is extraordinarily attentive, but NOT overbearing. They are professionals. The menu has classic Italian standards as well as other more creative options. They offer specials in both appetizers and dinners. I happened to order the nights homemade pasta- pappardelle al busco- thick ribbon cut pasta with HUGE portobello mushrooms and a brown cream sauce. Have never had anything like it. AMAZING! My husband had the gnocchi bolognese which was also outstanding. We have not ever had a bolognese that comes close to the types we've had in Italy over 8 years, unti, of course now.
All the appetizers were perfect- pan fried mozzerella, shrimp cocktail and fried calamari were wonderful. Desserts were lovely, chocolate mousse cake and a lovely homemade tiramisu.
There is not a children's menu available, and the restaurant definitely gives off an adult vibe. It has actual linens and water glasses, etc. However, they were more than accomodating. Our waiter even told us that if we needed chicken fingers or fries for the kids, they would be more than happy to do that for us. They even allowed us to specifically request kinds of pasta and preparation for our 6 and 3 year olds.
It's cozy. It's calm and quiet. It's got an amazing staff and out of this world food. I have a feeling this will become a regular date night for me and my husband!
