This is a lovely spot for a cozy dinner. The food is outstanding, and the environment is clean. Noelle is an absolute doll and professional, if you are fortunate enough to get her as a server.

They have nice pasta dishes with the pasta being very well prepared. This is a classic Italian restaurant with excellent service. Street parking is available with some being free and others requiring paying a meter.
