We walked in at 5:30 on Father's Day and fortunately they had a table for 2. This is a very cool place in the basement of the building. It feels like a modern cave with some natural light. We shared a very good arugula salad...More

Love the pizza downstairs, and the food upstairs or downstairs is fabulous. Great ambience. We have been going here for 10 years and never miss going here when we come to town. Seafood, pasta, pizza, appetizers - always consistently well made food.
