The menu is varied, and several specials were offered. The food was enjoyed by all of us. It took 15 minutes to be served a glass of wine which I meant to enjoy while reading the menu.

Such a wonderful place should be listed as something else, paradise maybe. Had a wonderful dinner. Didn’t love the tomatoes carpaccio. I guess it lacked a nice cream of balsamic. Anyway, the capeletti of wild boar where outstanding. The flavor, the precise point of the...More

We saw this place on Yelp and thought we would try yesterday. It is new but the chef was the lead chef at Antonello's, our favorite restaurant in Orange County. We were NOT disappointed! Carpaccio di Cinghiale, which was excellent. We also had the Trofie al Ragu' di Coniglio which is pasta with rabbit ragu. The pasta was homemade and the ragu was different but really flavorful. We never would have thought of rabbit as an entree, but here we would order it again!
