The restaurant is very cozy and quaint. The appetizers were excellent. I would recommend the cap mushrooms. We all ordered different dishes and the pasta was 👍 great. Good service and nice cloth tablecloths/napkins and lighting.

Warm and cozy neighborhood restaurant with excellent food. Somewhat limited menu compared to many other places but plenty to choose. Excellently prepared and served with competent and attentive staff. A gem. This was first visit but plan to return again and again.
I do not agree with the other reviewers. I have always had great food here. Sometimes the service isn't great but the quality of the food has been.
