Third time here and we've loved the food every single time. It's a smaller restaurant on the hill, so I would recommend reservations on the weekend and especially in the summer. The dip trio is always a favorite of ours. They do $4 wine pours...More

Wonderful welcoming restaurant with local seasonal fare. We had a delicious squash and Parmesan soup, seared scallops with shaved pear and fresh homemade pasta with beef and basil Ragu. Waitstaff super friendly and offers good advice. Very pleasant find.

I only visited that one time and we had a male server whose name was not Bri. Regardless, the place was really great and our visit could not have been better.
