to start our experience (second time there) we walked up the stairs, indicated who we were and the host (manager?) pointed to our table- he didn't even walk us there! We ordered the bruschetta which was ok, and the cheese and meat platter. The cheese was basically grocery store calibre provolone, and the blue was too bitter. for the main dishes, our friend described their dinner as a beef-a-roni on steroids. I had the chicken with Pancetta which was very tasty and was the best dish from our table of five. It is a pricey restaurant- just don't set your expectations too high and you shouldn't be disappointed. Service was adequate.

We always enjoy going here. The food is always good with lots of specials and appetizers to choose from. The staff is attentive and the manager Brian is great. They only serve beer and wine. Try the pork cheeks if they are available. They were fantastic. Cheers!!

This is definitely a quality eating experience. I have only been during the week and service was always good but not too fast. They are not trying to rush you. It's a quaint place with excellent salads and appetizers. Great location.

Went here on a Saturday night after a UGA game which probably wasn't smart. We were lucky enough to get a few seats at the bar and decided to have dinner even though we couldn't get a table.
The food was delicious - we had salads (caesar and spring greens), ravioli and veal. A little heavy on the pepper for my personal taste but otherwise very flavorful.
The problem was really with service. Since the bartender was busy mixing drinks for all the waiters with tables, we waited a lot for refills, drinks, wine etc.
I would go back with a reservation any time!

The food is always fresh and the wait staff aims to please. However, this restaurant is better visited on a week day evening. It is extremely crowded on a weekend and the kitchen staff seems to get overwhelmed and the food quality seems to suffer. I do like the ceasar salad. You definitely need a reservation since the place is quite small
