My husband and I were very happy with the selections we made. The food was delicious. Our waitress Elena couldn't have been sweeter or more helpful. This is a restaurant we will definitely visit again and take other family members too.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here a couple of weeks ago. The signature drinks were interesting and quite good. We all got different kinds of pasta and salads, and all of us were happy with our choices. Wait staff was attentive and pleasant.

Pasta dishes were consumed by all with great gusto. The signature martinis arrived brim full and a pretty good house made tiramisu topped it off. Nice location just off the beach if you are hanging in the avenues.
