This restaurant is a wonderful surprise. We use to be big Divino fans but when that closed felt it would not be able to be replaced. We were wrong! Cosy lovely restaurant, with great service food and wine. We will be back.

Down on the pedestrian mall this spot has a great ambience and open kitchen at the back. Special appetizer was great and a very good wine list. Lots of options without the menu being too big to do well. Good service. I recommend it.
