Beautiful seven course meal. Franco, the chef and owner, was charming and enthusiastic. There was no menu. They simply asked if we had any allergies and then went to work. It was more than a meal, it was an experience. We'll definitely go again.

The meal looked nice but the taste didn't match how it looked. The salad wasn't light and refreshing because it had too much oil on it. The meat was tough. I'll be trying other restaurants and won't be giving this a second try.

The quantity of the food isn't that great. You'll have to order two plates for a mid size person.

Great selection of beer is the best part. Service was worth a 15% tip not 20 though. We were only in the upstairs dining room, I can't comment about the street level resturant. Too bright for my liking, seems more like a ski hill cafeteria...More
