This totally Vegan restaurant offers a limited selection of dishes. Among our dinner choices were the truffle tagliatelle (terrifically creamy), shells with vodka sauce (good and spicy), and the spaghetti with mushrooms (bland and watery).
The outside seating occupies a small space in front of the restaurant. We sat near the open doors into the indoors where 80's disco music was loudly playing.

Plus: My Vegan guest enjoyed her food and loved having an entire menu from which to choose. Services was efficient and pleasant.
Minus: The outdoor seating was not relaxing and the spaghetti with mushrooms was a total waste of money.

Wanted to support a vegan restaurant, since there aren’t too many vegan options. The food was decent, albeit overpriced. Everyone in our party had a good enough time, however I prefer my own home cooking.

I cannot say enough about how well they operate, create and present a charming dining experience. Only one member of our party is vegan, however we ALL loved scraping our plates clear.
Our waiter was great, the additional table attendants were on point.

We loved the food. Garlic bread and Arancini were phenomenal. Pasta was good with fresh made delicious sauce. When they say it is spicy, -- it is really spicy! Great spot for vegan and non-vegan foodies.

On a super humid night. No ac. You have to ask to finally get a waiter to come over. The garlic bread is a soggy cheap hoagie roll lol. I’ve been vegan for 9 yrs. this place is not a good look

Loved it. The waitstaff was so great - very timely, attentive without hovering. Never felt rushed even when the place was packed. The food is delicious "comfort food" - hearty pastas and raviolis - a shiitake mushroom clam dish. Really fun. I do think their bartender could be a bit better. He or she over-stirred or over-iced our drinks so they were a bit watery. If you opt for beer or wine, though, it's great.

We tried 5 of the pastas and shared amongst 5 people. Every dish was delicious, especially the ravioli and tagliatelle. However, the reason I knocked one star is because the portions were a bit small. I think the plates need to be filled more for people to be full from their pasta entree. If each dish wasn’t so expensive, maybe people would order a side or garlic bread. But the value for what you get is lacking. All in all, the experience was great and we would all return.

The food was delicious, the service was great. The only negative was that it was very hot outside (90°) and the restaurants indoor dining had the doors open and no AC on. It was so hot inside, I was sweating. I probably won’t go back until it cools down.
