On a Tuesday there are half-bottle wines to complement the fresh Italian foods--pizzas, apps, rissotto, pasta, seafood, meat entrees. Something for everyone served with friendly attention.

The food was very good, although a little lacking in presentation. I would hearily recommend the asparagus salad with blue cheese. This is a small place, so be prepared to get cozy with the neighboring tables.
