    It's turned some of its Italian cocktails into Popsicle treats suited for the swampy weather, like the Bellini with its blend of peaches, Prosecco & vodka, or the equally tasty “Potenza”. Read more

    Some if the best tiramisu I have ever had. The entrees are good, but the pizzas are stellar. The prosciutto stuffed clams are excellent.

    Go to Potenza. Order the milanese style pork with arugula, charred lemon, parmesan and arugula pesto. It's easily big enough to share, if, perhaps, a little too delicious to go through with it. Read more

    I had lunch here with table service the food was delicious, the service was not good considering the prices, $14-22, better to do the counter service, it looks to have many of the same dishes for 1/2
