    Complementary focaccia is great. Side salad is fresh & light. Good wine menu (house red was good). Tasty chicken parm served on a bed of spaghetti. Lots of yummy sauce. Delizioso! Make reservations!!

    I love this restaurant, the ambiance is wonderful as is the service. I went for a glass of red wine & fancied some cheese, they made a cheese plate even though they didn't have one on the menue.

    Yelp find! The food was AMAZING!I started off with the Spiedino (marinated chicken breast, goat cheese & fig. Goat cheese was perfect consistency and flavor, chicken was tender. Best chopped salad!

    eggplant rollatini=yum!--they only have that on the weekends or else the Portobello Lasagna is always good. Better to make reservations for dinner. Make sure you tell them about bdays. Brunch is okay
