I've been to this place years before, and enjoyed it. This time, the linguine was over cooked and the sauce so salty I could hardly choke it down. This is an interesting place, but the food quality and execution this outing didn't impress. Perhaps they are coasting on their reputation... I still give it three stars, as the service was... More

Quirky, eclectic place that also feels like sitting in a family dining room. A big, lively, happy family. Service was great. Food, fantastic. Between the fiancé and I we tried bruschetta, arancini, lasagna, and the seasonal gnocchi (this one had chorizo and mushrooms). They appear to have a nice wine list as well and I did try roscoto rosse dolce,... More

Delicious food and fun atmosphere... not very big so larger groups may struggle to get a table without a reservation and they dont take rezies on fri/sat..we took kids and the plates could be shared , but no kids menu.. a little pricey but very tasty...

Before 6 pm you'll be seated, otherwise you'll wait. Overall, this popular Italian café is quaint, rose-colored within a kitsch atmosphere. For instance, from the ceiling hangs an upside down rickshaw with a human skeleton. Interesting displays, but if you look more closely you may be offended. No Italian music here, instead I heard rock and Smoke on the Water.... More

Quirky interior, friendly staff. I had the gnocchi with Chorizo, not a combination I would expect but it was really good. I'll echo the recommendation of the house salad- small but delicious. We were in and out in under an hour. No wait at 7:30 on a Monday night.

Stopped here for dinner with the family not knowing what to expect. The interior is great with a fabulous atmosphere. Our waitress was great and we were able to get in without a reservation (luckily). The Forest Floor Frenzy was fantastic as a main and the Queen's Surprise was a great dessert. I highly recommend this restaurant for a great... More

Everything I have had here is delicious. The Elk pasta dish was superb. House salad is petite but very good. It is a small restaurant delightfully crammed with oddities on the walls and ceiling.

They don't take reservations for fewer than 6 so we waited outside with a glass of wine. It wasn't too long of a wait. The waiter was very good and fun. The food was the best Italian food I've had. The bruschetta appetizer had Gruyere cheese and figs - could have eaten those for dinner - they were so good!... More
