We found this restaurant accidentally when looking for a restaurant. It's upstairs and relatively small. Friendly staff. Waiter offered different recommended dishes. We tried the coconut shrimp, which was delicious with a sweet/spicy sauce. The salads were very good without too much dressing. I had...More

Five of us had a late lunch at this little, slightly below street level restaurant. We all enjoyed our meals. The lasagne I had was out of this world! And I am particular since I married into an Italian family. Great place!

The Italian guy outside the restaurant is really nice, he convinced us to try the homemade pasta. I specifically ask if the ñoqui was home made and he said yes. Well, it wasn't. We were sited on a table and a better one was free,...More

Great terrace location overlooking the street. Without question, the best calamari. The business group I was with all concurred that the calamari was one of the best any of us ever had. The marinara was slightly chunky and perfect for it. We had a variety...More
