    A little disappointed. The service was excellent and the food very good. Just surprised to pay $37 for a bowl of pasta bolognese. Good, but overpriced.

    Quaint romantic little restaurant. Always full on the weekends so we were lucky to get in at a last minute booking. Delicious pinot grigio. Pasta al dante and perfect. 1 small issue w plating our dish but was rectified with the entree on the house. Much appreciated. Will be back; ever changing menu is a winner !

    Absolutely loved our meal here! Every dish was beautiful. The grilled octopus was definitely the fave. Service was great. They accidentally gave us ravioli instead of the gnocchi we asked for, but they sorted it out for us. Cute little vibe. Will definitely be back.

    Small Italian restaurant The homemade pasta has a great texture. The 29cheese gnocchi is to die for as well as the tiramisu. Federico provided an excellent service

    The food was really good, but really expensive. Overpriced, if you ask me. The employees are really nice and helpful. Take the tris dolce, that one (or 3 actually) is/are amazing!
