Had a fantastic dinner on Saturday night. The staff was warm and welcoming, and the food was great. Judging by what we could see, this place looked like a local spot, not a tourist restaurant. Pricing was very reasonable and drink selection good. Highly recommend!!

Loved everything about this whimsical hole in the wall with warm feeling, lovely, fresh, healthy food from soups and risottos to more traditional fares.
