Everything I have had here is delicious. The Elk pasta dish was superb. House salad is petite but very good. It is a small restaurant delightfully crammed with oddities on the walls and ceiling.

They don't take reservations for fewer than 6 so we waited outside with a glass of wine. It wasn't too long of a wait. The waiter was very good and fun. The food was the best Italian food I've had. The bruschetta appetizer had Gruyere cheese and figs - could have eaten those for dinner - they were so good!... More

The kitschy decor is always a treat. The pasta was great. The salad was a disappointment. The wine list is short but satisfying.

I've been to many Italian restaraunt all over the East Coast and I stopped by on my Seattle trip. I have to say that this place is fantastic. I don't think anything on the menu isn't great. The rice balls are amazing, better than any appetizer I've had, and the pasta and meat are phenomenal. Better than many authentic restaraunts.... More

The food was delicious! The bread was awesome with the oil and balsamic. The salads were crispy fresh perfectly seasoned. The pest ravioli and the lasagna were out of this world. The portions were on the perfect to large side. Alas, we had no room for dessert but we saw some of the other desserts and they looked scrumptious! Great... More

Went to dinner on a recommendation and the restaurant was on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives! Off the the beaten, path. Have to have a car or take Uber or Taxi. Food was excellent, staff was great. I would recommend getting there early. They don't take reservation and it got busy quickly!

If you like to eat feeling like you are in a garage sale or an antique store, this is the place for you. Interesting items, paintings, chandeliers, all over the this small spot. The food was fabulous, and everything else we saw ordered looked great too. We had the Arancini, and the Eggplant Parmesan, Foraged Mushroom Pasta and house salads.... More

Saw this from Diners Drive ins and dives... Fun atmosphere and great food! We tried a papardelle pasta dish that was delicious and also a baked pasta that was full of cheesy goodness! It is a bit of a drive outside the city so plan accordingly. The surrounding neighborhood was cute too.

This place is wonderful. They don't require or allow reservations. It's kind of small but is full of personality. They make their own noodles and they are fan freaking tastic! I ordered the forest floor frenzy. A pasta dish full of mushrooms. It's definitely a stick to your ribs kind of meal, but oh so good. My hubby got the... More
