In summer you can eat in the back garden, other times inside is small and crowded with good ambience. Either way the food and service are superb. Close your eyes and your in Italy.

Had a Saturday reservation and the place was hopping. Everything was fresh and came out hot. Not a huge selection but that's ok because everything was great. Reservations not required but definitely needed on the weekend.
