Two couples, one from Rome and the other from Philadelphia, stumbled across this little jewel by luck. From the glass of complementary wine redolent of strawberries and herbs to the exquisite pasta, all was beyond satisfactory. Well worth every penny

We reserved and arrived at 8:00. The menu is small and most everything is fairly simple. The emphasis is on locally produced and excellent ingredients prepared to perfection. I think they succeed. We ordered crostini; yes, it’s only bread and tomatoes, but what bread and...More
