I’ve been to this restaurant many times, with friends, family and alone. I’ve never been disappointed. The restaurant has a very rustic touch and although it is quite small is very friendly and comfortable. The food is always very good and the staff professional and...More

Small, romantic, outstanding Italian restaurant. I don't like to be so positive, if not it will be harder for me to get a place, especially in the evening. But simply one of the best Italian restaurants downtown!

Authentic Italian in a cost setting. A handful of tables, good wine and copious amounts of outstanding food. What more to want or need?
