Unfortunately I had heard rave reviews about this small restaurant located on the west end of trendy Montana Ave.
The restaurant was empty except for 1 table, as we were walk-ins without a reservation, we didn't expect the best table, however we were denied every table that we requested (In an empty restaurant!). The only table we were "allowed" to have was near the kitchen and near the waitstaff station.
The food was delicious but it was very hard to get past the idea that there were so many EMPTY tables, which remained empty until we finished our meal. The staff (owner) acted like they were doing us a big favor. Good food spoiled by rude staff.

Very nice, small Italian restaurant on Montana. The Shrimp Vincenzo is absolutely delicious and the ambiance is very nice. Everything from a cozy date night to a meal with friends. Cant go wrong here.

If you are looking for a small, mom and pop, authentic restaurant, this is your place! The owner serves your food and addresses your every need. The pasta is made fresh on a daily basis as well as their desserts. Its a bit pricey, but well worth it. The pasta tastes so fresh and melts in your mouth.

Visiting from out-of town & tried this smaller, intimate rest. (on a busy Fri. night) based on the favorable reviews of others. Would agree completely ! Ambience is intimate, yet fun. Service was attentive, yet relaxed. Highlight is the food, which was delicious. Good location, parking in back. Highly recommended.
