The meal was wonderful. Great variety. Wish we could have had a second opportunity to dine there. The host was friendly and accommodating. The service is friendly. Charming place to eat.

We had passed this unpretentious-looking little restaurant many times assuming it was just a college hangout. We couldn't have been more wrong! The layout is reminiscent of many European restaurants: narrow building with the bar downstairs and two upstairs dining rooms. We've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The menu variety is great. The preparation excellent. They offer a dizzying array of pastas and creative sauces that the diner can pair, as well as meat and fish entrees. Generous portions (think doggie bag) at reasonable prices.

Small storefront is deceptive; there are two more floors above with nice ambiance and big windows overlooking the street. Very reasonable prices; grilled fish with pasta and wine all for less than $25.00 and the quality of the food and service is excellent

Ample menu; reasonable prices. Atmosphere is nice. Upstairs venue off Pleasant Ave. Only negative is the parking, which is across the street in a metered lot, unless you're lucky enough to find curbside parking somewhere.
