“Insiders Favorite BYOB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Where do I start?
Classic Italian Restaurant with a twist.
The chef is from Mexico and cooks Italian Masterpieces.
This is a true Mom and Pop eatery that does it right.
Husband and Wife team who cooks and takes care of the customers.
On weekends the Chef offers an additional side to the menu, Mexican cooking.
Not fast food tacos but real dishes from Mexico.
Interior is very simple and plain but comfortable and service is not rushed.
Parking is plentiful on both sides of the street since there are few residences.
Laid back atmosphere with great food and your favorite bottle of wine.

“Glad we tried it ... but we won't return”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

Perhaps we just tried this small neighborhood restaurant on the wrong night, but from the get-go we were not impressed. First off, parking is a problem. Secondly, I stood inside the front door for at least 5 minutes and no one even saw me. The decor is a hodge-podge of Italian, Irish, Mexican and Asian ... and it just doesn't work. Taking in the decor and neighborhood location, we were surprised to note their prices were in line of a much more upscale restaurant than their own. The food was good but not worthy of the prices and the portions were not large.
