My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner here. The restaurant was crowded and we didn't have reservations so we sat at the bar and really enjoyed our meal. The bartender was friendly and added to the fun evening. Great experience and highly recommend it.

Wonderful welcoming restaurant with local seasonal fare. We had a delicious squash and Parmesan soup, seared scallops with shaved pear and fresh homemade pasta with beef and basil Ragu. Waitstaff super friendly and offers good advice. Very pleasant find.

I only visited that one time and we had a male server whose name was not Bri. Regardless, the place was really great and our visit could not have been better.
