I came here with two friends who live in Raleigh after they recommended it. It didn't disappoint. The service was great, although, a crumb-scraper would be appreciated. Being Raleigh, it was a little humid out and the table was wet with the ice water glasses, and then crumbs and things on the table, it looked like a group of monkeys had eaten there but it was just the three of us. An intermediate, quick, table-wipe would be much appreciated.
The food was fantastic! We had the meat / cheese appetizer and the pate was.. yowsa, SO good! I had a special with sausage in a pasta with pesto and something else; I can't even remember what was in it, but it was great. Everything that we had was great, and the desert was, too. I highly recommend this spot and their outdoor dining area is huge, too.
