I'd wanted to try this restaurant for a while, especially after learning it was owned by the same team as owns the Rookery & Taqueria. Walked in alone, and although there were lots of tables, was asked to sit at the bar. I often enjoy sitting at a bar when eating alone, but it wasn't like the view from this one was good - mainly prepped food, cleaning supplies, a bit of a mess. And the stools were wobbly and uncomfortable.
The house-made papparelle with beef/pork ragu was good - not great. It was a bit flat, and the sprinkle of dry cheese on top tasted a bit off. They had some anti-pasti out for complimentary nibbling, which was nice. The wine list, including by the glass, had good options.
I understand running a restaurant in Juneau offers special challenges - it's expensive to get in supplies, staffing can be tough, etc. But I think you can put in the effort to make a place sparkle a bit more and for everything to look good and work well.
Will try this spot again - preferably with others, where sharing dishes, including the wood-fired pies (which did look good), would be more fun.
