We dined here with friends last evening. It's a rather small beer and wine bar with a very classy atmosphere.
They feature Italian fare of pasta and fish plus other standards. We shared the fried calamari which was quite tasty. I thought the entrees were a little high as no salad, vegetable, or soup was included. All four of us cleaned our plates.
The staff was very friendly and attentive.
We will return! I just hope this little gem survives!

Very nice moderately priced restaurant. I had spaghetti puttanesca and my wife had chicken Gorgonzola. Both were quite tasty. Service was very attentive.

Went one week after opening. Very nicely done inside, we counted 33 chairs, but a very cozy atmosphere. Staff was very helpful and attentive. Menu is ala-carte, so you have to be careful not to drive up the bill. A nice assortment of different pasta dishes, most around $15. Entrees with meat or seafood into the $20's. But don't forget, those are without a salad or soup. Not much bread either, but we did ask for more. Portions not large, but everyone said there's was very good. I had fettucini with onions and proscioto, my wife had gnocci with garlic and oil. the red sauce on the fettucini was excellent. Don't bother with appetizers. VERY skimpy and overpriced. Will probably go again, but not in any hurry. With the prices and difficulty parking we hope that downtown Canandaigua can support it.

I called for a Friday evening reservation and was told they don't take reservations but was assured that there would be no problem. Guess what, we arrived at 8 & were advised it would be a 20 minute wait and there were 3 empty tables. When we told the hostess we had attempted to make a reservation we we were told that she had been in the business 20 years and it doesn't work to have reservations because people don't show up. We were disappointed and went elsewhere. We like many folks like to make reservations when we go out on Friday nights. Will try them during the week but hope they wise up In regard to reservations at this small restaurant in a small market.
