    Simple and delicious Italian offering. Get their wonderful arugula salad and meat and cheese platter. Highly recommend the cheese with truffles!

    Two classic Italian prosciuttos on the menu, and it's fun to taste them side by side--those pink slices ribboned with silken fat have layers of flavor that seem to go on for miles Read more

    When I think "Italian sandwich cafe and wine bar" this place is basically it. Delicious sandwiches and drinks and fantastic people watching from the small sidewalk tables on 2nd ave.

    They make this Panino with Proscuitto & Cremini Mushrooms that is amazing. They also have a great Happy Hour w free antipasto on the bar if you get a glass of wine. Love it!

    Stop by on Sunday night and take in some live music as you feast on charcuterie and wine. You won't be disappointed.

    It gets packed at 6pm for an insanely good happy hour (free food!), but even then it isn't too loud or annoying. Lovely servers.

    This place has consistently terrible service. Slow. Not enough waitstaff. Brought me the check without asking if I wanted dessert and walked away as I was explaining I wanted to order more. Rude.
