Went here for the first time on a first date; I admit I was way out of my element as I typically hangout in Chicago so I’ll try not to be overly biased. First off, the young lady working the floor was extremely knowledgeable and...More

Incredible dishes. Homemade and delicious. Portions are big so go with an appetite. We'll be back! Intimate setting and a homey feel to this restaurant.

Incredibly delicious lunch here -- the salads are so fresh and unusual, and the pasta deserves ten stars instead of five. Tried to go again the next day for dinner, a little on the late side, and they were out of food! So don't spread...More
