A perfect family trattoria for residents of west end. An excellent and wide choice of different pastas and sauces that can be ordered in an easy and individualized format. Steaks are also tender. Service is faultless and the decor/ambience is notable.

Delicious fresh pasta and a large selection of sauces offered in mix-and-match style, and when I couldn't decide between two sauces, the server offered to have them serve me both, half-and-half on the pasta. Turns out they were both delicious. We also took the server's...More
