Brunch: Ordered the Asparagus Sundried Tomato Omelet with Rye Bread. The eggs were very dry as were the potatoes. It contained little asparagus and tomatoes, but quite a bit of goat cheese, almost too much. I would not order it again. Friend ordered Crab Cake...More

A relatively small restaurant along the train tracks in downtown RO. A real gem with great food and service. A little noisy and parking is limited to metered parking along the street. We were not disappointed. Would go back.

I think for the price, this special was a pretty good deal. I’m not a fan of cannoli for desert but the food was good quality and the service was good as well. I think a solid 4 Stars in this category of restaurant

If you look at the menu online, it does not specifically say gluten-free but you can substitute the offending starch.
