We went here for an anniversary dinner. Everything was exceptional...the food, the ambiance, the service...etc. It was super quiet when we went but that is what made it alluring and just intimate. We ate inside but took our desert outside where it was pretty.

Family of seven immediately seated. Very good service. Everyone in our party enjoyed the entrees -- bucatini with seafood stew and goat cheese ravioli were especially good. Looking forward to returning soon. The building is very charming -- nice place for a family get together.

Same old, same old, this tired old place? Front entrance needs a coat of paint, a dust off? Food about average, bar too busy on a Wednesday nite with 10 customers for one tender, tired, slow, hungry, please get help

To my recollection they only serve dinner. Most days beginning at 5 pm. There is a great bar selection and the ladies would love it, but no lunch time reservations.
