Great armosphere, service and food. Very quaint, only six tables inside and a couple outside. The service was impeccable. They had several gluten free options for my daughter but no gluten free pasta. Make sure to have a reservation.

This place only has about 6 tables, but the food is great and the service very pleasant. The waiter is actually from Sweden originally, and his English is perfect. Reservations are a must.

Do not be fooled by the size, this place offers huge flavor. A variety of local wine, perfect pasta, and desserts to die for. The spaghetti with clams was light and filled with taste. They take pride in the food and setting. Knowledgeable staff and...More
