This charming restaurant is easy to miss while driving on Bissonett, it's across the street from Kay's. Valet parking. You can sit inside or on the patio, but whatever you do...make reservations, they are only open for dinner and not open on Sunday. We introduced a couple of friends to this spot last night, they were impressed with the fresh pasta and the reasonable prices. It's really like being in Tuscany, my favorite is the Sage Ravioli and the Chicken Parmesan with the sauté veggies, portions are large so you can share or take the leftovers home. I must also mention that the servers are very attentive.

My wife and I were booked in on a Saturday night. When we got there it was obvious that this was a very popular spot to the extent that there was not a single table unoccupied. I was slightly concerned because when restaurants are working at total capacity there is the chance that attention to detail might slip. However, this was not to be the case. We were shown to the bar which also was totally full. However, we were served smartly by a very knowledgeable barman and had only to wait ten or fifteen minutes until we were offered a choice of tables - noisy or less noisy. Having opted for the latter we were treated to a splendid meal which, despite the chaos all around, was served in a very relaxed an friendly manner. The food was cooked to perfection. The choice of wines was exceptional and the whole experience very enjoyable.

This restautant is always filled-but the service is superb-so the kitchen must be large. Every morsel consumed is special-we have never had to wait for a table in one of the many rooms. We dine often and usually order the specials which are-well-special- the avocado shrimp crab remoulade was superb as is there occasional osso buco-most telling the fish are always well prepared and the dishes are beautifully plated.Everything is fresh and perfectly prepared. Becomming our co favorite with Sorrento.

A friend took me here for my birthday. You are served a yummy garlic toast to start. I had the tomatoes caprese and it was very good. My entree was a Chilean Sea Bass in a white wine/butter sauce. It was excellent. The service was very good although we did feel like we were being asked to leave when there were still several tables available. It is in an old house in the village and very charming. There is also a very nice outside area.
