Small, comfortable & cozy. Service excellent & with enthusiasm. Owner visited our table several times & chatted. A nice selection of food. Salmon, flank steak, tomato capresse, bread, included bread with spreads & Cream Brulee were all great. What a nice place!

Ate a la Carte here and the food was great. It’s a little on the pricey side but worth it. Recommend the scallops and the steak. Apple pie for dessert was beautiful. Friendly service, good wine. Recommend.
