The wood fired pizze was amazing. My fiancé and I ate here the night before his Ironman triathlon and we loved it. He got a spaghetti dish and I got the pizza but we shared. The calamari was lit and we had the small Italian...More

We enjoyed a long evening here, barely catching breath as we caught up with friends we had not seen for years. The restaurant is small, and the service unobtrusive but most attentive. We had some excellent valpolicello ripasso, and enjoyed a selection of antipasti to...More

I'm not much on a Italian foodie but this place was excellent. It is actually two restaurants but have different names so Uber drivers get a little confused on where to pick you up. Enoteca Vespaio is right next door and just the more casual...More
