    The food was amazing. I'm pretty fussy about how fish is cooked. I ordered the Mediterranean swordfish, and it was perfect! Will definitely be going back more often.

    A very good somewhat neighborhood type restaurant. Traditional Mediterranean setting, simple but somewhat European decor. Service was attentive. Food was well prepared and delicious. The tomato burrata salad was exceptional. We will return.

    Our party of three enjoyed a relaxed, non-rushed dinner. The menu choices were varied. We all selected the fish special of the day. The meal was well prepared and the portion was plentiful. However, for the price charged, it could have come with a pre-dinner salad option. We shared a delicious tiramesu dessert that we all enjoyed.
