This is a very intimate, small space with a nice menu and delicious flavors. The main house salad with goat cheese was wonderful. And the antipasto starter is a huge plate of nice cheeses and meats.

Our first visit, 3 of us, we had to change our ordered 3 times because even traditionally gluten free dishes were made with flour...flour in the risotto? come on! Who does that? Even the fish was floured. Not a place for anyone with celiac disease!...More

Amazing! The Gnocchi were "little pillows". The owner is a delight. Great recommendations for wine and you can't go wrong with the food. Make a reservation unless you want to eat at the bar, the restaurant is rather “intimate”.

It offers very nice Italian food. Its pasta dishes are very good with reasonable prices. For the main course, I like the sauteed duck breast. ($24.99)... The seating is just so so, a crowded place. Waiting time is long. Reservation is hard to make. Street...More

Fabulous pasta dishes. Homemade pasta with interesting fillings and sauces. Doesn't get much better than this. We sat at the bar and I enjoyed that as it was easier to talk to my partner then perhaps at a table as the noise level is a...More

Probably a couple of miles. Not that far, by car. Or perhaps local bus if theres a route.
