Small, cozy, busy restaurant with simple and delicious food. The caprese salad and the Alisanzas di Sardegna (pappardelle with sauteed onions & pancetta in fresh tomato sauce) were lovely, as was the young lady who waited on us. It's a labor of love for the owner.

A Sardinian Italian cafe, this tiny gem boasts a European flair with delicious food. The menu is classic fare that is enhanced by the fresh pasta and simple approach. They serve espresso and Italian cocktails to meet your needs whether for a weekend brunch, light lunch, or after dinner drinks. Excellent find with great service!

Of COURSE our server's name is Francesca! We were looking for a hole-in-the-wall gem. And we found it.

Following TA and a friend recommendation i went into this place, as i really love Italien food, especially pasta. It looks very nice, it is actually a bit unusual compared to the surroundings area.
I was nicely guided to a table and staff was friendly and efficient. The pasta, a special of the day, was nothing special at all. Actually pretty tasteless, disappointing. Had a glass of sauvignon blanc and it was equally pretty poor in taste, at least for me.
The place is nice but my food / drink experience was rather the opposite. Anyway, i might give then another chance if in the area again.

This a a classy cafe-style Sardinian Italian with good service and very tasty dishes. The pastas are fresh and excellent. Good day specials. Outside seating in the summer. My favorite Italian in theColumbia University area.
