We had a restaurant.com coupon for this place, and made a reservation. It wasn't needed, as there were open tables at 7:45 on a Saturday night. It's a cozy, romantic, dimly lit place, and everyone there made us immediately feel welcome.
We sat down, were given menus, and started to watch as Claire, the sommelier and sometimes wait person, made another table's caesar salad. Couldn't wait to try it. But first, our drinks were taken and specials recited. Everything sounded so good!
We ordered the salad for 2 and our entrees. Hot, fresh bread came out first. The salad, minus anchovies, was every bit as good as it looked. Garlicky, with buttery freshly made croutons in a lemony dressing. My husband ordered the shrimp and pasta, and 8 shrimp came out on a bed of pasta dressed in an olive oil/garlic sauce. I ordered the shrimp fra diavolo on whole wheat pasta, and was pleased with the level of spiciness. I was NOT pleased to see a $3 surcharge on the bill for the whole wheat pasta. I should have been told.
We ordered a glass of limoncello for dessert, and in discussing it with the bartender, found out there is actually a peachcello too, and he very graciously sent over a taste for us (and will DEFINITELY be having that very soon!)
Everyone was charming and friendly and we enjoyed it. The portions were not overwhelming, and it's just a really nice place to go.
