Great place to eat, celebrate or conduct business. Our server was Clair and she was fantastic. We had the terrific muscles and calamari. The spaghetti and cheese filled meatballs were also terrific. I would most definitely dine here again. Coat check room is available.

Good homey restaurant. Sadly, they don’t have Krug Rosé and Monkey 47 gin in their menu. Still very provincial but, Good service.
