My wife and I snuck away from the kids for a romantic dinner and we were not disappointed. Crab cakes, stuffed shrimp, the house sangiovese and creme brûlée. Perfect! You won't be disappointed.

Hi, I'm planning a 65th anniversary for my parents and family. We will total 16 or 17 people. Do you have a room we could reserve on the early side (my elderly parents like to eat at 5:30!) on June 17, 2017? Thanks, Susan
