Went for dinner. People were nice, but food was average or less. Ordered the pasta carbonara and it was a greasy mess. Not very good. Kale salad was good.

Walking distance, it just feels like home. Friendly service, solid menu, well-made and nicely presented. When we want a home-cooked meal but can't muster the energy, we relax with our friends right here in our neighborhood.

We found this place through Living Social. We made reservations, but it didn't appear that we needed any. Our waiter greeted us at the door and took very good care of us for the entire time. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to talk to....More

We enjoyed our meal but it really wasn't anything outstanding. The service was very good. Prices seemed at the high end.
