    We shared Burrata, just amazing. Main course: Black Spaghetti, their signature dish and the Scallops, perfectly cooked. We finished with Crème Brûlée and Olive Oil Cake. Everything was wonderful

    This place has the BEST chicken I've had in my entire life. It's extremely moist and seasoned the perfect amount. The food here is very fresh. I love the modern ambiance. It's also family run.

    Never had a bad dish from their dinner menu! Love the decor, the people and the fact that you can sit at the bar, enjoy a delicious drink and food, and opt for mingling with the others or not.

    Fantastic place. Bread and butter was amazing. The specials of Veal with a gorgonzola sauce and monkfish were tremendous. Calamari and croquettes were also very good.

    Antipasto, scallops, and grilled octopus are top notch. Even the chicken dish is very good, nice glaze and crispy skin. Fresh vegetables. Creative cocktail menu.

    Chicken fra diablo, polenta fries, and the clean and tangy cocktail (a pisco sour) are the ways to go

    The braised chicken was surprisingly out of this world. Usually chicken is an afterthought on a menu, but this was delish!!
