The asparagus appetizer was tasty but the bolognese was average. The bread was not fresh. Tiramisu and ricotta cake were delicious but the espresso was lukewarm, Expensive for the quality of the food.

This small neighborhood Italian gem is a great stop for a meal with colleagues or a solo lunch (I did both on successive days, I liked the place so much!). There are only a few tables so best to reserve ahead by phone but the...More
