    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.

    They're very accommodating of large groups but tend to rush you out a bit.

    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.

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