Love the Greek meatballs, gnocchi, and berry crumble! We sat outside under the hanging lights, and it was absolutely lovely.

Table of four seated at a table for three with an extra chair sticking out into the walkway. Some of the food was prepared, seasoned, and plated well, but some of it was mid-warm. Repeated looks from the kitchen staff toward the end of the night was a nice touch too.

I don't think it was worth the $150 tab for a shared app, two meals and no alcohol.

I may return, but probably not.

Good food, great service but a bit on the pricey side. Will try again for sure.

My friend and I enjoyed a delicious lunch. The curried cauliflower soup was very good. We also very much enjoyed the noodle salad with pork belly. the combination of warm and cold, spicy and mild was very nice. The dark chocolate mousse was very creamy topped with beautifully ripe berries, and the cannoli a treat.

What a great place! Went on a double date here for Valentine's Day. The food was great and the ambiance was quaint but inviting. The staff was precise and helpful. Toward the end of our meal the owner, Maria approached us and we ended up talking until after the restaurant closed! She's the greatest!

We had been before, but this time the food was just ok...very expensive, and we would have been better off going to Tony's for the same price.

I thought the service was really outstanding. I thought the food was also outstandingly priced. For the price, you can't beat this place because the food and ambiance feels higher end but not as high as a Perry's or Flemings so it's pretty nice. To be fair we sat in a really dark corner but I think the rest of the tables were more well lit. But I really had a problem with the too dimly lit table we sat at, I could not see my food and I couldn't see the menu and I don't even need to wear reading glasses or anything so if was definitely dark, I could barely see my two friends I was with. The food tasted very clean and fresh, very made from scratch but not as good as a higher end chain restaurant. I'm sure if I tried more of the dishes they served, I may change my mind but only having tried 3 different dishes there, I would give the food 3 stars. I had the quail, the beet salad, and the duck and pork flatbread. My friend had the soup and she said it was the best thing there.

Sat at a small table in the corner of a room near the bar. Very isolated and not a comfy feeling.
