We were surprised that to find this restaurant located in the downtown area. We wouldn't have known about it if friends hadn't suggested it to us. As other reviews point out, the restaurant itself is nothing special, but we felt the food was representative of the seasonings and flavors we experienced while traveling in the Tuscan region of Italy a little over a year ago. The family that owns the restaurant also runs it. We felt they are working hard to deliver a quality menu and good service. I understand from talking to the manager that the recipes have been in the family and originated in Italy. There is no bar service, but BYOB or BYOW is allowed. They will even keep you white wine chilled during your dinner.
