We arrived early and got a nice table right away, they do not take reservations for parties of les than six.
The attractive menu complemented the tastefully designed interior. Acoustics were not great and not helped by the jazzy background music.
Service was excellent. Waiter was polite and accommodating to our two children splitting an entree.
The limited menu included standard Italian specialties, some pastas, pizza, risotto, and a couple of meat courses. Our choices were spaghetti with bolognese sauce, linguini with white truffle, pancetta cream sauce and risotto with local shrimp. All were very well prepared and presented. Focaccia with olive oil was on the table and very good.
We were glad to see this addition to limited tourist eateries around town. This is a refreshing change from others in town with their faux Polynesian menus.
It is also a suitable replacement for our old Italian favorite Pomodoro that closed this month.
We shall return,
