Lunch menu is extensive and good value. Their bread is delicious and is served with every meal. They have a small outdoor seating area. Desserts are overpriced.

So i really wanted to like this place I been here a couple of times. I have been looking for a nice place to do a big red hats event. This was on my list of places due to the fact that one of my friends daughter recommended it to me. So I have gone a couple of times to see what this place is all about and how the food is. I have no complaints really about the food. It was very good. I even saw the chef making rounds by some of the table and talking to people wich was unique to say the least you don't see that a lot. How ever prices are very high for the portions. As far as the manager or who ever he was all I have to say is bad things. He was dressed very shabby; holes in the pants and a dirty stained shirt really i almost thought he was a homeless person, but then saw how the servers were talking to him. Also all I heard everytime I was here was this man screaming in some other language at all the people around him no one was safe from his rath. I was witness to one event when one of the servers through a tantrum and ran back to the kitchen yelling and screaming then all you heard was a bunch of glass breaking. All I can say is this is the most unprofessional reasturant that I have ever had the pleasure of being at. I just can not go here any longer. I can't stand by and support an establishment that has no respect for their employees. The last time I was here happened to be today at lunch time when I had the privilege of over hearing the manager tell the chef that he had to send his wife and child home. They were not welcome in his establishment. I don't know what kind of place pratices policies like this but I feel any place should be family friendly especially when I see this same manager trump in all kinds of friends and his girlfriend on a nightly basis and even gives them everything for free. I never saw any of them get a check. So you take a chance when going here if you like drama then this is the right place for you. I however will be taking my business to another place.

The lobster and scallop pasta was extremely delicious, but the eggplant was not very flavorful and had a bland bechamel sauce on it. The atmosphere was romantic - we sat next to the fireplace. They also have a happy hour from 3-6 AND 9-12, so we ate late and then did our drinking. Even more surprising is that if you go way around in the back, they have a room where they show whatever kind of movie you are in the mood for on a big screen. While we were in the bar, we struck up a conversation with the owner who was friendly and made us feel more like we were in his home rather than a restaurant. What can I say - it's a unique, intimate, friendly restaurant.
