This was our second time visiting this quaint little bistro. You must have reservations always. Tables are a bit close together but that really did not cause a problem. Service was prompt and friendly. I decided on the Osso Buco Milanese, which is veal shank...More

A wonderful French restaurant. Great food, the chef is French and has taught his sous chefs well as when we went on Monday evening he was off, but the food was absolutely delicious. We ordered starters as being in a French place rather than American...More

Yes, it serves tiramisu and small tartlets. I don't remember anything else. Try calling the restaurant. You definitely need advance reservations, as the restaurant is quite small. We have enjoyed this small gem twice.
