Food was great, service was excellent and prices were reasonable. My wife had Rack of lamb special she said was one of the best she ever had. I had Zuppa Di Pesce Fra Di Avolo which I would recommend.

La Courrone served us promptly with very good pasta, penne vodka was very good. We had to go around the corner to buy wine. Friendly atmosphere and quiet. A nice choice for casual dining.
