    Mussels & truffle fries. Experiment with the pots that have a cream based sauce... Might sound weird, but they're amazing to the last bite!

    Good wine list/cocktails menu. Recommend sharing a few different pots to sample different flavors. The Parma is insane. Skip the apps and instead save room for truffle fries and doughnuts!

    Nothing more nourishing than a giant pot of mussels. Avoid the complex offerings and spring for the classic white wine mussel meal. Great doughnut dessert course too.

    Did you say donuts? Offering several different filling flavors, you have the ability to choose what your donuts (4 or 8) will have inside! Very impressed by the selection and they tasted amazing!

    Inconsistent.... A ton of shells in my meal and the sauce not nearly as good as my precious visits. Also they pour the smallest glasses of wine

    Overrated much? Nothing spectacular in terms of taste. Had the maine, fungi, little neck, and cleopatra mussels and all were rather mediocre, esp for a place that specializes in mussels! disappointed.

    The Parma mussels are so incredibly good. Who ever said cheese and seafood don't mix? Heavy. Will not be able to have desert. The Italiano are great as well. Service is spot on.
