I heard this restaurant is owned by the same people as the The Fork. However the food and experience for us it exactly the opposite.

We had a very nice table, good wine for the price and could talk to each other in a normal voice. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was even better. We will go back many, many times.

I thought this place was a great find! Really good food and wine! Cool little joint, tucked away in downtown Boise. I will definitely tell people about this restaurant!

Very intimate and cozy new restaurant - same owners as Fork, next door. Beautiful decor, not many seats, so I recommend a reservation. Nice bar, friendly staff. I had the Grilled Broccolini which was an appetizer - very good and tasty w/ a "crispy" poached egg on top! Pastas are made fresh daily and delicious - not your regular "lasagna/spaghetti" place - a bit more upscale and edgy. Desserts are sinful - try the vanilla cream w/ salted caramel & chocolate pretzel bark - wanted to dive right in! Burrata and the Proscuitto were nice appetizers. Would go again. Nice wine list.
