The restaurant is very small with a limited menu but what you get is fresh and delicious! We ate from the menu Prix Fixe and each course was lovely. Our server was pleasant and was always there to refill our wine glass. The pickled fiddleheads in our salads were excellent and when I inquired about them, the chef came out to tell me how they were made!

In general this is a nice place, though not exceptional. The best thing that we had was the deep fried artichokes as an appetizer, somewhat like a tempura. I had ravioli which were drowning in olive oil and my wife had sword fish which was good though nothing exceptional. The Greek wine was OK.

We arrived on a weeknight with no reservation, and found the last two places at the bar. Everything was beautifully prepared, with special attention to things in season (fiddleheads) and freshness (fish). The meal was really superb. We had very pleasant waiting staff and just a lovely evening out. Would recommend and go again.

Waitress was great!
App was ok had the smoked pork. there were 3 of us, one had the fettuccine dish, one had the ravioli dish and one had the lamb loin chops.
Both pasta dishes were small, the lamb chops were not from the prime cut but the front or back end of the loin, was disappointing for $26.
The coffee was cold, and the desserts were nothing to write home about.
but the biggest upset was the wine. Turns out the wine price prices were by the glass or half bottle and if you missed that you paid double for a bottle you thought was $19.

A charming little restaurant tucked into the town of Brunswick. The appetizers (artichoke and bruschetta) were a delicious start to the meal then the homemade pasta made the meal incredible. We had some of the seasonal ravioli and could even see some of the chefs preparing the pasta in the back. Very cozy and genuine atmosphere. I completely recommend it to all!
