It's such a great place. It has a great and cozy atmosphere. The surroundings were nicely decorated with original art on the walls. Get the Florentine Benny and a gin-filled drink from there. So yummy!! The service was quick and friendly.

Great food, great people & great place! It was full, but right behind is a coffee house that had great cappuccino & we were able to bring it over to Wilf & Ada’s. They texted us to say our table was ready.

Very small place, was packed on a Wednesday at lunch - really nice atmosphere and not too loud. Being small it allowed them to give great attentive service. The food was crazy quality at this price. Fresh, creative and delicious. I laughed at how ‘wow’...More
