    Allison at the front was warm, friendly, and accommodating when we asked to add a 5th seat not long before dinner. The garden-like patio setting was quite attractive, a very pleasant environment for dinner. The food was uneven, some good, some less so. The wine list is limited, but it offers some good choices, and the mark-up is lower than other NH area restaurants. The service was warm and friendly, but not always prompt nor at a professional level (not bringing new wine glasses for a different second bottle of wine, reaching across the table to pour, spilling on the table and leaving it, forgetting to bring plates to share as promised). Overall, considering ambiance and price, worth visiting, but if they upped their game potentially a great restaurant.

    We had dinner here with another couple on a beautiful sat evening. I won’t speak for anyone else but the patio is just gorgeous when dining outside in good weather in the spring. I had the salmon with peppercorn cream sauce and gnocchi while my partner had a pasta dish. I tasted my partner’s pasta dish (forgot which one he had) and, it too was delicious. My salmon was done perfectly, not dry, and the gnocchi was like eating little puffballs. They were so light and airy. We shared the creme broulee for dessert which had a nice crusty top with a seriously creamy smooth and delicious custard. The wait staff was very cordial. The price for the 4 of us was very reasonable.

    The hidden gem of New Haven. My favorite traditional Italian restaurant for a wonderful plate of pasta and a glass of red wine.
