    The dishes were well prepared and tasty- the service was exceptional. The out door seat was very quaint but a bit loud. It is a small neighborhood gem. I reconnected it.

    Wonderful outside space, safe and spacious. Fabulous food, flexible menu, reasonably priced with chef's delicious "gifts" for the table of bruschetta before and freshly baked, warm cookies after our scrumptious meal. Very attentive yet unobtrusive service. What a neighborhood find. This will be our go to Italian place.

    Excellent food as always. Usually excellent service not up to speed. Appeared to be short-staffed, which we made allowances for, but still very non-attentive to our table. Hope it's a one time occurrence because we love everything else.
