Nice place, small dining area, great food. They are proud of their food but a bit high priced. You cannot argue with the quality.

All the food here is excellent and prepared fresh. Good menu variety. Eating areas are very small and crowded. Although the food is excellent the cost is much more than I would expect. Worth a visit for the good food.

This place is one of several in PortA with gormet food cooked by tempermental chefs that moved here to run restarants by there own rules and the food is amazing. From appetizers to entrees, there is something amazing for everyone. YUM

The place is very small and if it were a busy night it would probably be a decent wait. However, the food comes out pretty fast and it is delicious! Great place for vegetarians too! We went on a Friday night and there was no wait and our food was out in about 15 minutes.

We went here based on the reviews, we left totally disappointed. High priced for bad service. The kids spaghetti and meatballs wasn't bad, I had crab cakes and wasn't what I would of expected for the price, small and not very appetizing. My wife got linguine with crab meat and she couldn't even finish before she got a stomach ache. Not going back.
