Although the food is good and the atmosphere here is charming, it is absolutely abmissmally loud in this place. That ruined it for us, as one cannot even carry on a conversation over dinner. Also overpriced. Our advise: Do Not Go Here!

Went tobtgis restaurant with another couple and had an excellent meal with great service, good wine selection, and very relaxed environment. The lamb was cooked to perfection and everything was done well. Will definitely go again if we anywhere close!

Enjoyed dinner here without any reservations. We arrived early enough that reservations weren’t needed: around 5:30 pm. The food and ambiance were excellent, however the ceasar salad wasn’t impressive. But the chicken piccata was delish!
