My husband and I have enjoyed dinner on several occasions in the past few months. Everything we've ordered has been delicious- chicken limone, pasta of the sea, chicken parmesan- but nothing compares to the lobster cappalachi. (I hope I'm spelling that right?) If you love...More

This is a small quaint place. We went on a Saturday night, two couples. It was a little loud. We each had some pasta or seafood dish. I had osso bucco ravioli and my wife had a black pasta with giant shrimp and calamari. Both...More

We tried to eat at this restaurant several times during the week but never found it open! Not very useful when you are hungry. It's just around the corner from The Carleton Hotel. Does it ever open?

We had drinks, tapas, and entrees! Everything was very good. Service was excellent and the food was well prepared and hot! A little in the expensive end but worth it for special occasions

This is a small, quaint restaurant offering an extensive menu. The food is excellent and the service is very good. The portions are big. I cannot wait to go back and try other items on the menu. It feels like being at someone's home.
