Entre menu and seafood/fish selection are not as extensive as I would like. However, one can make a meal from the selection of appetizers. All dishes we had were out-of-the ordinary complex and tasty combinations of flavors. We had a very good clam chowder that was in a thin broth...lighter fare suitable for summer...and shared an order of lamb meatballs and mushroom "pinsa"...Roman pizza; loved the crust. Servers are young and, maybe, need more training but are very pleasant. Main complaint was we were given teaspoons to eat the soup.

Had the large veggie + meats platter to share. There were different dietary options for all in our party. We asked for mild spice, and it still had a relatively high "burn level", but we were ok. Stayed till late, inadvertently, a few minutes beyond closing time; all were nice and tolerant with us nevertheless.

Originally, I had a reservation for dinner, but my friend and I decided to eat at the bar instead. Antoine was our bartender/server and he was fantastic. Appropriately friendly and very efficient. The food we had was very good and will definitely be back for more.
