I've had better Italian food, but the dishes here are a bit creative, the atmosphere is very inviting and casual, and the neighborhood is really cool. Also, it's not that expensive. Get the grilled corn and the lamb meatballs.

We had the waiter fill the tables with a variety of entrees to share. All beautiful. Crumbed olives with cheese were a standout. The mains that followed were equally as good including mouthwatering steak and duck that was unbelievably tender. Would definitely highly recommend. Also...More

First off, the food is amazing and that's the point of coming here. A great atmosphere too. Food service was perfect. BUT we booked a table for 8pm and weren't seated for 25 minutes. I wouldn't have minded but the hostess had ignored us for...More

YES. Definitly need to try this place. I've been there later night, and I've been there during "normal" dinner hours and it's been great each and everytime. Some of the best pasta in the City - and that's saying a lot in this town.

They usually have an Italian menu but their brunch menu is a little more "Californian". Food is uniformly good, nice brunch selection and well size portions. Selection of appertifs is pretty amazing!

The best thing about this restaurant was the cocktails. All of the food was just okay. The menu items sounded more appealing than they actually were.

The food was great - I had the tortelli with trumpet mushrooms and pine nuts. I have a food allergy and I was impressed that our waitress went out her way to make sure all foods were "safe" for me. My friend had the lamb...More
