Nothing to special and prices are kinda high for what you get but good atmosphere and seemed pretty busy! I only had breakfast so maybe other meals are better for price to portion :)

Delicious & beautifully presented freshly-made pasta & salads. The crab ravioli was divine. Attentive service, good location for people-watching on a busy street corner.
