Favorite dishes include: Caprese (the buratta is the BEST we’ve ever had!), chicken Milanese, and - the off menu lemon cream ravioli. They have a great happy hour and many daily specials like martini Wednesday and free corkage Tuesday. Great cocktails. Great staff!!

This restaurant is somewhere you would go if you had plenty of time to kill and no plans afterwards. We were sat by the window where three small tables are located. There was almost no room for me to get up. We ordered our appetizers...More
