    Great arugula pear salad and burratina con prosciutto. We had the pappardelle con agnello for our pasta entree and it was delicious! It could've been salted a bit better though, easy fix.

    Cozy space.. Great for dates, small intimate groups, and solo dinners. Authentic Italian cuisine made with fresh ingredients. Reasonably priced. Decent wine selection. Street parking.

    Very small, great for two-four people. Amazing food and friendly waitstaff. Try the prosciutto scallops and shrimp risotto with a glass of red wine.

    Charming neighborhood Italian spot. Good homemade pasta, but the kitchen could stand to use more salt.

    The arugula salad with figs, pecorino, pine nuts, strawberry and truffle vinigrette plus the butternut squash tortelli is one of the most amazing meals I've ever had and I'm a carnivore! Delicioso!!!!

    The baby arugula salad with pecorino, pine nuts, peaches and grapes are a perfect warm day starter! The house Primativo red wine is pretty hard to beat as well...

    Totally overrated. Don't get the "grilled" octopus (slimy and soft) or the scallops with asparagus purée (scallops seemed boiled and purée was flavorless).
