Great place for a quiet romantic dinner. Authentic Italian food. Make sure you have reservations as it is small. The owner will most likely come visit with you and talk to you! Wines only no bar.

An intimate setting of 15 tables makes for a nice evening except when all the tables are full and the staff is overwhelmed. The menu is classic Italian with many options. The meal was well prepared and delicious. Wine list is extensive albeit a little...More
