they didn't want to cook little pastina for my baby because they don't accept food from the outside. It's ok but pastina is dried and baby food is not poison! The stroller too (the smallest one on sale) was a problem.

It's always delicious when we go. They have a lot to choose from on the menu and so far everything I've ever ordered has tasted good. The wait staff is very friendly as well as all of the staff. I will certainly return.

Met a small group here. They have the usual Italian fare, but they also have gluten free options. The gluten free calamari was a winner. Would love to come back just for that.

There is another level (up a few steps), which is semi-private. I believe they can certainly seat 18 people in that space.
