We stopped in for an early lunch after church. Most people were enjoying breakfast and a cappuccino. I ordered the Grilled Vegetable sandwich and my husband had the Italian Sub. Both were fabulous. My sandwich had thick slices of grilled vegetables. It was a mess...to eat, but so good. My husband's sandwich was filled with a variety of meats and mozzarella. We had no issues with prompt service. Will return.More

Wife and I had a great breakfast, sat outside. The takeout was busy, however, the patio was not crowded and very relaxing. Will have to try lunch!

While the food(lunch) was very good, the service was lacking. The wait person never checked on us during the meal, never refilled water glasses, and we waited over 20 minutes for a check that never came, requiring one of us to see the manager who...could have cared less. Go there if you have the patience.More

Charming with excellent food. The only downside is that the owner is a stiff. Despite the fact that my wife and I have been going here for years, we feel like strangers every time we go. He doesn't have a clue as to how to...make people feel welcome and engage with them on any level. I had dinner with friends last night who also frequent the restaurant and completely agree with me.More

Italian spot for breakfast and lunch. Affiliated with Bice Restaurant. Wait staff is quite delightful. Lattes were good and the egg centric breakfasts my party ordered were really good. My chocolate croissant was served warm and looked like a croller - high marks. Would definitely...go back.More

Had lunch. Excellent burrito salad. The food was wonderful. The owner was extremely friendly and the service was very good. Would highly recommend for a casual lunch. The bread was the best ever. The biscotti were so good we bought some to go.

We had a wonderful luncheon in this restaurant that is only open for breakfast and lunch. It is on the corner of 5th and 3rd and easy to miss. BUT don’t miss out. The outdoor seating is charming and the staff knowledgeable and attentive. We...are sorry it took us so long to find it.More

When I first looked at the menu I was worried the prices were a little steep, but the quality of the food and the portions made up for that and then some. My Prosciutto Di Parma and mozzarella sandwich was amazing. Super fresh. The staff...was very friendly and professional especially the Owner, Augustino. I highly recommend this place.More
