Nice little spot I took my two teenagers to. I had a salmon salad, they had jambalaya, and pasta. Great music played in the background, the service was friendly and attentive and I would go back.

My husband and I both ordered the Tagliolini al tartufo. It was unbelievably delicious. We also shared a bottle of Orvieto Classico white wine which was very crisp and clean.
