A relatively small restaurant along the train tracks in downtown RO. A real gem with great food and service. A little noisy and parking is limited to metered parking along the street. We were not disappointed. Would go back.

I think for the price, this special was a pretty good deal. I’m not a fan of cannoli for desert but the food was good quality and the service was good as well. I think a solid 4 Stars in this category of restaurant

interesting cocktails, great appetizers , decent Caesar salad, good Eggplant Parmesan, outstanding Salmon & Fettucini Alfredo w/ Shrimp ... but most poor suggestion : Ravioli Caprese w/ Italian Sausage. The ravioli were tasteless and not 'al dente' at all ...

We enjoyed the food and the waitstaff was very attentive, helpful and friendly. The big windows were open, almost like eating outside. And the drinks were great! Thumbs up for the pizza appetizer.

If you look at the menu online, it does not specifically say gluten-free but you can substitute the offending starch.
