Only open evenings but stays open late. A smallish place with different and interesting tappas and salads, local beer and extensive wine list. Everything we had was good. People were very helpful and friendly, we did not feel pressured to make quick choices. The place was full and consequently quite loud but everyone was there to have a good meal... More

After going to Shakespeare and Company, this was the only place we found open and serving food at this late hour. Small and crowded, we finally found a place at the bar. Great selection of beers, pleasant tasting house wines are served to you. We shared their house salad, and several tappas as well as one of their individual sized... More

This is possibly the best tapas restaurant ever. It is certainly one of the tastiest restaurants we've ever been to. Small, yes. Great and amiable, unobtrusive service, yes. It accommodates about 30 including 10-12 at the bar. No reservations but the wait is worth it unless you are lucky like we were and arrived just as a foursome was departing... More

Superb food served informally in a wine bar setting. Unfortunately, it's so popular that there is almost always a wait, and sometimes just not worth the effort because the line is so long. But nice food, wine, and beer.

Small but fun place with good food and a great wine and beer selection. Worth waiting for a space. Not for those who want privacy but that is part of the fun. Truly the best pizza I ever had and I really like pizza.

A small space but attentive service allows guests to relax. It is a real wine bar with an extensive beer collection and delicious food. Mostly small plates but if you are hungry you can order enough to satisfy yourself. Some tables are covered with plates as guests pick among the choices. And the cheeses, pates and charcuterie - to die... More

I didn't get to try the food because kitchen was already closed but it smelled delicious! The place is small and it can get very packed but it's worth it. They have a huge variety of beers and wine.

We discovered this place on a recent cycling trop to the Berkshires and enjoyed our meal and the service and the atmosphere so much, we returned the following evening. The pizzas were fantastic, we really enjoyed the creative salads, the appetizer plates and the drinks and wine list. We sat at a table the first night and at the bar... More

Went here on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews, and it was a great choice. We didn't have reservations, and we like to eat late, and made it in here to get the last table. They have a great drinks menu, excellent choices for cocktails, open wines or draft beers, and the menu selection is both varied and exciting, we tried... More

had a wonderful dinner at the bar...especially loved the sauteed swiss chard and the shrimp. Lots of wine by the glass at reasonable prices for a good pour. Would certainly return!
