Quirky interior, friendly staff. I had the gnocchi with Chorizo, not a combination I would expect but it was really good. I'll echo the recommendation of the house salad- small but delicious. We were in and out in under an hour. No wait at 7:30 on a Monday night.

Stopped here for dinner with the family not knowing what to expect. The interior is great with a fabulous atmosphere. Our waitress was great and we were able to get in without a reservation (luckily). The Forest Floor Frenzy was fantastic as a main and the Queen's Surprise was a great dessert. I highly recommend this restaurant for a great... More

A qwerty and tasty dining spot. Nice variety of unique Italian based dishes. Dessert was wonderful and staff was engaging and helpful.

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
