It was a Friday night, and they didn't turn their noses up at farmers in blue jeans from a local convention. The service was low-key and friendly. Husband had the chicken two-ways, and I had pork and pasta. Both meats were from named local sources, under $20 for the entree, and both very good. Can't pin any particular reason for not giving this restaurant 5 stars, except a few little things like a slippery olive oil bottle (I dropped it the first time I touched it), and a slightly-too-rich sauce. But really, I'd go back there again!
