    Great pasta and ambiance. Perfect for a summer evening.

    Can't go wrong with anything on the menu (unless it has mushrooms). The roasted chicken and steak are both very good. The trout is light and very tasty.

    Solid cocktail menu and seriously cozy atmosphere. I recommend the New Rider if you like whiskey sours.

    Do not miss the roast pork sandwich on the lunch menu: hunks of roast pork, ham, aioli and pickled jalapeños.

    I was expecting more here, but food was solid. The skate was well prepared and the pancetta in the sweet potato salad was delicious. They also made me a delicious Arnold Palmer.

    Share a homemade pasta (pair with a kölsch) and get the whole trout if available (pair with the hefeweissbier). Really intimate warm space and it gets surprisingly packed even on weekdays.

    The walnut pasta was pretty decent, although I felt that something was missing in the taste. Cozy atmosphere.

    Great cocktails, beer and wine selection, and pasta was amazing. Also leave room for the panna cotta!
  • Sandra R.
    Really great food (always lots of options for your gluten-free, paleo friends) and vibes. They don't take reservations for parties under 5, but there's usually no wait for small groups on week nights.

    Great homemade pastas and delicious focaccia bread for the table. The cozy space can get pretty cramped though.

    Spring for the chef's choice meat and cheese plate. It was fantastic. The house-made pastas are magnificent, especially the Strozzapreti.

    Dining at the communal table in the center of the restaurant is fun; opt for bar seating or the few two-tops for a more intimate meal. Read more

    Romantic, cozy gem of a restaurant. Good for dates! I came for dinner once and got the whole roasted trout – it was so delicious! The brunch food is great as well. Can get crowded, however!

    Roasted chicken brought my own life's failings into sharp relief. Get it, and you will know the face of God.

    The eggplant sandwich was very fresh and full of flavor. The escarole smoked feta salad was the perfect compliment. I would love to come back to try a pasta.

    Snooty waitress. Tiny portions. Weird presentation- slab of bread with layer of brown jam, nothing else!
