I love this little neighborhood restaurant. The service is fantastic and everyone is super friendly. The 3 cheese gnocchi is decadent. Fish can be prepared in a variety of different ways to suit your fancy that day. Save room for dessert!

Staying in this area without a car there were not many choices to eat at. This was a delicious place to eat. Quiet and clean. No ants.
