We ordered two different salads and two different veal entrees. All were excellent! The wait staff were friendly and attentive despite a large crowd on a rainy Thursday night in April. We suggest reservations or early arrival.

Everything is great. They also have an extensive wine list and the owner is great for suggesting which wine to get to compliment your meal. The bib salad, lasagna and Osso Bucco are fantastic.
