My wife and I had her birthday dinner here. First time here for me she was here many years ago. The food was fantastic and tasty. You must try the grilled Calamari it was outstanding. Both my wife and I got the Agnolotti Piemontesi and it was also very good. The atmosphere is low key and the service was great.... More

We hope to serve you a new and exciting entree when you return! More

A very nice, high quality restaurant hidden on one of Towson's many side streets. The interior setting nice. the food very good, and service was excellent. It is not cheap as this is not a place to get a plate of spaghetti and meatballs. I had the lamb chops which were excellent, very tender and cooked perfectly. My husband had... More

They had a happy hour with 7 heavy appetizers for $7 each. The appetizers were average to better than average with the mussels in white wine being the highlight. Got 4 of the appetizers with 3 Moscow mules, a Manhattan and a glass of montepulciano for $100 including tip. Your call

The apetizer was excellent! Drinks great. Dinner was a little slow but tasty. Then waiter disappeared for about 20 minutes after finishing dinner. And again took a long time to serve dessert.

The restaurant has a small bar and several high top tables. There are happy hour prices from 5 to 7 pm (M-F, only?) several light fare food selections and a few house wines. We had the Mozzarella slices topped with cherry tomatoes, drizzled with olive oil, and calamari in a rich, dark tomato sauce. Both were quite good. The accommodating... More
