A friendly neighborhood joint meets killer cuisine meets best bar staff in this part of the city. These guys really pack a lot into a lovely, small space -- inviting dining area, communal table, busy bar, a bit of outdoor seating, all managed by a friendly and adept staff. We like the dining bar at the back, facing the kitchen, near the pizza oven. The appetizer/small plates menu has recently been added to their full menu. Burrata salad, the mixed seafood salad, the mushroom pizza are our favs but the menu changes often enough to keep us coming back to see what's new. Can't say enough about the bar staff - these guys are really into their craft, including a smoked cocktail - haven't tried that one yet. The noise factor can peak at moments but mostly there's not much need to shout to be heard. Give this place a try, we think you'll be back again pronto.
