Visited for the first time tonight based on Yelp reviews and must say we experienced more than we expected. Setting was very warm and inviting, the owners, John and Iggy, manager Matthew and our server Olivia were excellent. The food was delicious. I ordered the Bruchetta (assorted) as antipasti, shrimp with pesto over linguini pasta as main course and dessert, Papaya Mango ice cream in a champagne glass were delicious. My husband ordered the PEI Muscles as antipasti, chicken with mushroom and mash potato's with broccoli rabe as main course.

-The manager, Matt was very warm as well. While we waited to be seated Matt was chatting with us and after we were seated he checked in on us every so often.
-One of the owners, John was so warm and a perfect host. During our meal he would visit our table and chat with us too, really made the night comfortable. We didn't speak much to Iggy but the bit that we saw and heard he is just as warm and inviting as John, Matt and Olivia.
-Olivia was warm and friendly as well, new the menu, was able to provide good suggestions and always made sure we were happy.

It turned out to be one of the best evenings yet and we will definitely be returning with family. Oh one more note, they do not serve liquor but do allow "bring your own".

Thanks for a wonderful evening John, Iggy and Matt. We look forward to seeing you all again.
