    Wow! A new favorite! The presentation was amazing, the food was absolutely delicious, not only was it flavorful, it was evident that it is prepared with great pride and love. The Chef is a true master. The service was excellent, we even received warm hand towels when we were first seated, which were delivered by a friendly server. (A very nice touch.) We cannot wait to dine here again, what a gem!

    The pulpy was amazing! All of the seafood was lovingly prepared and delicious. The salad was fresh and tasty. Wine was served appropriately and the restaurant was quiet and comfortable. Dessert of blueberry cake was extraordinary! Would go again for sure.

    I have eaten there for breakfast and lunch many times. We finally decided to try dinner. The services was excellent but we felt dinner was very expensive . I ordered the bronzino…half of the filet was full of bones. Everything is alacart.We shared a salad, ordered the entrees and two sides. Our bill was over 100 with tip.. Too high for a neighborhood resturant. We will continue to go there for breakfast or lunch.

    Walking in to the restaurant, it had a nice feel. Dimmed lighting and warm feeling. My group of 4 , scheduled for 7:45 reservation, had to wait at the door for about 15 minutes for our table. As all were still filled. We were compensated by 2 desserts for our inconvenience. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The food for the most part was tasty and well executed. One complaint was the mozzarella stick appetizer. It came out as 2 very small disks of mozzarella sandwiched between 3 large tomato slices, more of a tomato salad. The cheese not the star. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. It was my first try at dinner there. I will try again.

    We were seated at the perfect outdoor table and had the attention of our server immediately. There were two specials but the four of us ordered from the menu. DH enjoyed his octopus appetizer very much. The other couple shared a salad. Two people ordered the Bronzino and they both enjoyed it and noted that the tail curled up after the fish was filleted in the kitchen giving it an attractive look. This dish does not come with any side vegetables and looked a bit lonely on the plate. The chicken was the choice for one person and it had lots of interesting mushrooms and he enjoyed it. I ordered the salmon and it came with rice, scallions and avocado. Don’t forget this is a BYO.
