Mini buffalo chicken balls and spicy pork are both outstanding. Best Veal chop I have ever had. Porcini crusted tuna looked amazing........I will return

“Unique concept, amazing meatballs.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Unique take on meatballs, excellent execution. A little for meatballs. I do like their Buffalo wing take on the meatballs. All menu items are fresh, look appealing and clean.

“outstanding meatballs, but small portions”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

The meatballs were among the best I've had - I ate the ones with the olives and capers in the sauce. We also had the grilled watermelon with burata, which was unique and very tasty, but at $14, I'd have expected more than a 4x4 square of watermelon with a couple of tablespoons of burata on top. Wish I'd spent that fourteen bucks on another order of three meatballs. I swooned over the truffle fries! If you go with a partner, I recommend that you each get an order of meatballs, and share an order of truffle fries. It'll be a great lunch! The atmosphere is warm and contemporary, on a great corner for people watching.
