This restaurant was a good surprise. Decoration is beautiful and charming. The food is also very good and was a good surprise as well, as I was not sure what to expect. Personnel was very kind as well. I would definitely come back again.

Had a delicious dinner here, contemporary chic atmosphere and really great food. My salmon was cooked perfectly , husband liked his swordfish,unique sauce. My daughter raved about the pasta bolognese. There is nothing better than homemade pasta.

The plaque on the corner informs you that "George Washington tarried here." We did, too, and enjoyed excellent food. I had the octopus appetizer along with the creste pasta (squid-ink pasta, mussels, scallops, shrimp, tomato, bread crumbs, calabrian chili) appetizer, which together were more than enough for dinner. It became a little noisy at 5 as the bar got crowded... More

We were seated at a round banquette table so it made it easy to talk and felt private. The service was excellent; someone was always right there if we needed anything, and our water glasses were never empty. The menu was pretty varied, but most of us ordered a salad and a pasta entree but there were plenty of other... More

Had dinner here on a Monday night. Ordered light - just the salad (insalata), which was fresh and delicious, and the mushroom and spinach pappardelle (it can be ordered as an appetizer or entree portion, which is nice). Very impressed with the home-made pasta. That alone will make me a repeat customer. The service was also excellent.

Late lunch today with family. Appetizer was the Fritto Misto and scallops. Entrees were the Agnello and the Salmon. The dessert was the panna cotta. I advise two orders of the scallops well worth it. Awesome food!
