Was not expecting how nice this was. The drinks were good and the dinner was amazing. We ordered the goat (never had it before) and was pleasantly surprised. The servings were large enough to share and quite tasty.

The place was buzzing on a Thursday night yet service and food was outstanding when nine of us gathered to celebrate Nonna's 90th birthday. All dishes were as if they were prepared in a trattoria in Palermo or Messina. Delicious!!!
