Wine great. A little disappointed in the platter. More bread and deep fried. Portions seem to be smaller. Service fantastic. Love the setting.

Great place to eat outside when weather permits with tree's surrounding you. Food is so tasty and not too expensive. Free wine tasting before you eat is enjoyable with great advice on flavors etc of the wine. Staff very helpful and are happy people.
