Roost declares itself an italian restaurant, but is not italian in the traditional sense (no chicken parm or other similar options, no pizza). It does have a spaghetti and meatballs entree, but that is about it from a traditional perspective. However- what is offered is of very high quality, the chef certainly takes care in the food. The salads were very good- very fresh, the appetizers were also very well done. Check out the menu at the website to be sure it isn't too non-standard for you- but if you are a bit adventurous (for italian!) you will be happy. Roost has an outside patio for maybe 6 or 8 tables. No view (fence) but on a nice night it works nicely. Inside is pretty trendy, but very small. Overall- food is very well made, owners do a nice job (came around and said hello, saw them several times talking to folks), so I think it is worth your time.
