This is a small restaurant one block off Bentonville square but the food is always consistently good and the bartender is always solid. You see a mix of couples and families. I've been working my way down the menu and have never been disappointed.

I’m not gluten free by choice, so I appreciate the offerings at this restaurant. The food looks amazing, tastes ok. Kind of bland from my experience, but I’ve only had limited items. I’d go again.

This is a wonderful restaurant with lots of warmth and ambiance. The "Wine Room" offers a semi-private setting for small groups. Best Lasagna in the area. Only drawback is the noise level for people who have some hearing loss and/or use hearing aids.

You would have to call the restaurant and ask. I cannot remember. I do remember it was very good thin pasta not thick pasta.

I am celiac and was able to eat there. It has been too long to remember what I had. I do remember the waiter helped me order. I don’t always get what I want but I do get something that is safe for me to eat

I am celiac as well and I ate there twice. They even had a gluten free home brewed cider. I’m sorry I cannot remember the name of it. I also don’t remember what I ordered but we did go there 2Xs.
