This chef is the real deal! The restaurant is tiny and charming. The food is outstanding. The waitstaff (especially Chris) take pride in this place. They buy local produce and seafood, and have unusual items like the watermelon radishes. The food is deftly prepared, innovative but not silly, and beautifully presented. I had the local shrimp scampi, served with outstanding homemade linguini and perfectly steamed asparagus. My husband had filet served atop a portobello mushroom, itself atop a beautiful polenta. My dessert was a tres leches cake with a lovely assortment of fresh berries. I highly recommend this place. Pricey but well worth it.

The former chef of Portofinos on the Wharf opened a small and intimate restaurant that serves absolutely excellent food. The seating is very limited so the owner added some tables outside in the courtyard and has lighting to make it very charming. There are a range of items on the menu and the staff is very friendly and competent.

What a great restaurant. Unbelievable lunch. Cannot wait to go back for dinner. Outdoor seating available. Very attentive service from Chris, our waitperson. Each dish that arrived at our table was photographable. The ingredients are fresh and prepared to create exquisite taste. Their hours are easy.. M-S 11-3 lunch and 5-10 dinner. This should be a regular spot for everyone. Just great food.!
