We never save room for dessert when we have dinner here (the food is so good!). So tonight just dessert and coffee. I had the vanilla tiramisu and hubby had the cannoli cake. Both were very good, light and well presented. The coffee was outstanding - Douwe Egberts, very very good!! Great staff, I highly recommend you stop in the... More

We stopped in for dinner a bit later on a Friday night. The place is not large and can be a bit noisy, but in an upbeat way. The food was very good, service excellent. I will look forward to trying this place in the summer as it appears to have a small outdoor courtyard to eat.

I was there for lunch and had a wonderful salad. As stated in other posts, the tables are very small, and we were crunched up against a wall. Not great, but it was still a nice dining experience. Staff was ok, they were on the phone and not very attentive.

They expanded the restaurant and added a beautiful bar. The walls were made wine barrel boards and the tables were natural wood coated in clear lacquer. Lights were wine bottles and rope, pulley. The food was ok. Pizza was average and salad was good. They don't have everything at the bar. They didn't have bud light beer. The wait staff... More

We had dinner with friends the other night. Service was excellent; friendly, professional with great timing. Tables are very small and can be uncomfortable with glasses and settings for four. The bread is excellent. We split the calamari appetizer. Unfortunately not crispy and a bit oily. The fry was probably not hot enough. Also not presented with dipping sauce. My... More

Had dinner with six. Very nice experience and the food ranged from excellent (cod special) to good (lasagna). The service was good and the revised decor is an improvement. Meal for six (3 drinking) was $190 including tip. Casual dress. Will definitely return.

The new area is beautiful with plenty of windows. The decor is very unique and interesting. The first night we ordered the lobster ravioli and beef something (I can't find the name of it but it was a thin past wrapped around meat with your choice of sauce). I would order either again! The second time we had chicken piccata... More

This is a charming small space & the new addition is beautiful. I love the barrel stave walls & stone throughout! It was packed with diners & those waiting to be seated. We had a 30 minute expected wait time. Tried to sit at the bar but it was full. As lovely as the space is, it is extremely cramped.... More
