Great local spot for amazing Italian food. Local owners truly care about providing amazing menu, over the top customer service. Quaint spot, great ambiance, great wine selection to drink here or take home. Bar service and menu is great too.

We weren't sure how casual this cafe would be but the food was like eating in Italy. The veggies and seafood were incredible and I was able to pick out a wonderful wine to drink with dinner. This is a great little neighborhood gem with...More
