We sat outside and I loved the ambience with the candles and the dim vibe. They played a happy birthday song which was really sweet and the service was a bit slow at the beginning but after we ordered our food and drink it was fine.

I had a Monkfish special which may have been one of the best seafood dishes I have ever had. Superb! Would definitely recommend and look forward to coming back.

The spaghetti with the raw fish was not very good. The fish was very fishy you could smell it. So all I ended up eating was the pasta. There was no sign of sea urchin. Will we go back, probably not.

And the PASTA. OMG. All homemade right there on the premises. All fresh ingredients. It was delicious. And the Price was right also. I wish they had a bigger selection of wine but other than that it was fantastic.

We had beet salad & sardines for appetizers, I had the Bronzino & my husband had pappardelle with mushrooms, dressing in the salad, Bronzino was very simply grilled, very flavorless, my husbands pasta tasted like raw flour (perhaps a rue was the thickening agent for the sauce and it tasted as such, everything was very bland, including the sautéed spinach I had with my fish. But again, can’t compliment the service enough.

The staff thought it was funny and was reluctant to help us. Food was great but overall experience was really disappointing with 0 consolation to make up for the inconvenience.
