Excellent service and food. Coupled with a comfortable ambience leads to a memorable evening. The menu never seems to change but it's all good. The owner is ever present which adds to its consistency

We came based on Trip Advisor. Small quaint restaurant. Unfortunately it is very loud and normal conversation is next to impossible. The appetizers were small in portion but the mushroom gnocchi was good as were the veal dumplings. These portions are not sized for sharing....More
