We chose to dine outside, and we are so glad we did. We started with the sardines appetizer. And then we split the green tagliatelle with wild boar ragu and black truffles. The service was amazing! The food was incredible. We will definitely eat here again.

The restaurant was so small it was uncomfortable to be in there long which was fine because the staff was rushing you out anyway. They also couldn’t find my reservation and kept saying it might have been at the other place before finally finding it.

Save so much room for the best Cannoli outside of Sicily. Would for sure return to this treasure chest of delightful cuisine and wonderful hosts in service.

We started with the eggplant parm, which was served close to room temperature and was still pretty good. We had the lobster pasta and the ravioli - again, both were good, but not great. Best part of the meal were the gratis canolis. Overall, food was disappointing and while we were more than willing to sacrifice dining comfort and the incredibly “cozy” dining accommodations, we didn’t feel that the food was worth the experience.

My only complaint (and it is NOT a big one) is that we were seated at a very small table, squished against a wall on one side and very close to the table beside ours (like barely enough room to get between them and I am not a large person). But that is not that big a deal, considering how wonderful the food and service was.

Negatives: risotto was abit expensive and not very good (just rice and a few mussels) without that much taste. Service could have been more attentive and welcoming.
