Ordered this with a Vallone salad for lunch - divine. I love Branzino and this was the best I've had in a long time. Bread is delicious.

Great service, very good food, and fine wines! Friendly bar! At the bar, ask for Maggie, she will pour on hell of a drink and offer you a slice or two of the best pizza in town!

There is a large private patio and I think there is a smaller room but not sure. The patio was set up for a party of about 50 or so with a buffet set price.
