Arrived to hear a loud wedding reception happening in the bar, which is open to the dining area. After having very poor quality mussels- worst we have ever tasted, we waited an hour to learn that our entree(branzino) was overcooked and it would take another...More

After a major disappointment with a previous visit to a restaurant in the same area, it was refreshing to visit a place where our server was very knowledgeable, excellent wine list. We shared several plates and a perfectly well-cooked branzino.
