Four of us stopped in not knowing anything about this place. Nicely decorated, a courtyard to eat outside and the food was very good. Not homemade but, still delicious and the service was good.

We dropped in on a rainy weekday. There were never more than 2 tables of guests. The service was attentive and the pasta and salad were great. It was good comfort food.
