Had a quiet lunch here with a dear friend. Never felt rushed (we had a lot of catching up to do) even though the lunch service was over. They were probably ready for a break to switch over to dinner, but never told us that....More

I ordered a simple pasta and shrimp in a spicy sauce that was quite tasty. Not overly exciting but still tasty. My boyfriend's dish was over sauced and not really the as the description would have lead you to believe. The bread served with the...More

I loved my pumpkin ravioli! Very delicious and the canollis are out of this world! My only complaint is that the place is very small and claustrophobic.
