Greeted by an enthusiastic and caring staff. The wine list is outstanding. The pork chop special and the brick chicken were excellent! Love the atmosphere, staff and food.

We have eaten here on three occasions, a couple of times just needing to get out for dinner and on another occasion when friends were in town. It's a big, open, airy room with lots of energy. Food is uncomplicated but not boring. Family style with large portions for plenty to share. A diverse wine list. Prices are reasonable and service is quite good.

Excellent service from friendly interesting staff, great atmosphere and wonderful food. The gnocchi is about the best we have tasted. We had a shared salad that had an interesting mix of leaves, plums, hazelnuts topped by a superb dressing. Save something for desert because you will be blown away by the Lemon Positano. The positive vibe flowed through to the diners with many strangers actually talking with each other. Highly recommended.

Great shared plates and the chef used lots of local, in-season ingredients. Great location and the perfect atmosphere to dine with old friends

Our dinner here was fine. Though we were not paying attention to what we ordered, and spent $200 for 2 adults and 2 kids, oops! The antipasti and cheese sampler (of burrata and burricotta) were wonderful, the veggies and olives delicious. Also enjoyed the arugula salad. My 7 year old scored the best meal with the casarecce/meatballs. The spaghetti was not very flavorful, and my husband and I split a flavorless, overdone halibut. Service was lovely. All in all a fine evening, just not as memorable as other meals.
