“gritty and good Italian in Portland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is a cool place, sort of gritty and not at all fancy pants place. if you are looking for elegant dining or a modern looking, sparkling place, don't go here. if you want some really good food and wine, servers with a clue at a sort of funky place, go here!

“Fabulous Food, Excellent Service, Quaint Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The four of us arrived at lunchtime (get there early if you do not have reservations!). We were promptly seated and our waiter was attentive and spot on with his recommendations. The meals were not only delicious, but they were works of art and had beautiful presentation. Be sure to save room for desert! The dining room is small, but friendly.

“Well done...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Great flavors, atmosphere and selections. All reasonably priced. Expect kisses if you are a pretty lady and the owner's Father is there...he'll even sing you a song!
