Reviewed December 13, 2009

I loved this place. A family owned restaurant (the wife still cooks in the kitchen). Myself and 3 friends started with crostini, followed by a platter of frutti di mare (mussels, razor clams, oysters, and prawns), the pasta was made with fresh mushrooms in a truffle sauce. We had a salt encrusted fillet of beef done perfect. 3 hours and 4 bottles of wine later we finished with berries in a balsamic vinegar and of course a digestivi. go there and spend many hours eating and drinking and chatting
