Pretty space, good menu, decent prices, reasonable wine list. Good service! I particularly suggest waiting to hear the specials before ordering. Sit in the back, especially in good weather, to be away from street noise.

It can be crowded on Friday nites, better to make a reservation in advance. And do not forget to check the dessert menu.
