We went for the first time this evening to this quaint and cozy locally owned restaurant. Upon entering, we were confused about where to go to be seated, but after wandering past the bar, we saw the small host station near the coat closet. The dining room is small, but the tables are arranged in way that, while close together, there is plenty of room at each table. The decor is not overdone, the lighting is nicely dimmed and the entire place is clean and comfortable. The staff are attentive and friendly. There is a waiter assistant who takes care of clearing plates if the server is busy, also constant water refills and fresh bread refills are taken care of by this assistant... very nice service! The salads have lovely mixed green that are fresh and crisp and the Italian vinaigrette was lovely. My husband ordered the Porterhouse steak which was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing - definite plus since I am the one who wants Italian and all he wants is meat!! I ordered the chicken parm and it was a huge serving with tender, delicious chicken and delightfully al dente pasta. The red sauce is tasty. We didn't have room for desert, but I don't doubt that it would have been remarkable. Be sure to introduce yourself to the host/owner on your way out so you can say hi when you return - I promise, you will want to return! A gem in the Rochester, NY dining world!
