This little Italian restaurant is located on the bottom floor of a small shopping mall in downtown Hanover. The ambiance is relaxed but also elegant and the walls are nicely appointed with artwork. There are about a dozen tables of various sizes. We were seated quickly and brought good Italian bread with olive oil. One member of my party had several specific requests for how her dish should be prepared, and the chefs did it as requested. I ordered the house-made Italian sausage with orecchiette, broccoli rabe and garlic, and it was very nicely prepared and flavorful. Entrees can be ordered as either full plates or smaller portions (my dish was $18 or $12, respectively). The menu includes several risotto choices, six or seven pastas, some secondis (chicken, beef, etc.), salads, piatini (appetizers to share), side dishes, and desserts. Large dishes can be split into two portions to share. Overall a nice dining experience--probably a bit pricey for students on a budget. There's also a good wine list.

First review but hope to do more,Food was ok but entrees were overpriced for what they are,pasta was a bit bland but what you'd expect in New Hampshire.steak was burnt though we ordered medium but flavor would have been nice(I imagine).staff was tentative but serious lacking in food department for what is charged. Hope to give it another go next time in town

We almost didn't go to this restaurant based on a review titled 'horrible". However, we were impressed by the owner's response, and decided to give it a try. Overall we enjoyed everything, and would recommend ti.

have gone here several times and have always enjoyed our evenings here. the food has been good to outstanding. portions are large enough that we have to take home the remainders. the menu is varied and is able to satisfy everyone at our table. love their eggplant parmesan appetizer and their arancini-both really tasty. had crispy chicken confit on spinach and basil risotto-outstanding for the main dish. also have had their grilled scallop dish with different accompaniments. truffle fries are also great and very filling when added to the other dishes. we fore go dessert as we are quite sated by that time. coffee is individually served in french press containers -hot and delicious. so do go there as it is a very worthwhile and enjoyable experience. it a great addition to the hanover dining scene

Sorry that your experience was "horrible", that is obviously not what we want to present. The young man responsible will be let go based on your comments. Thank you for comments and hope you'll give us another go. Regards.
