We ate dinner on the patio. I had the scallops and they were done perfectly. My husband had the short ribs and they were some of the best he has ever had. Restaurant is small and out of the way but the food is delicious...More

The interior does not seat many people, so plan ahead. The open-air patio behind the building is cool and quiet, but it's first come/first served out there. The food is magnificent! Try the sweet corn & crab frittata!

Walk down a little alley to find this adorable restaurant with patio brimming with diners out back. Yummy Italian fare and good wine and cocktails. Go to Basi, but no reservations on the patio so you may have to wait.

Who knew where this little gem was, let alone that this restaurant has such charm and great food? Our friends suggested it, and I am really glad they did. We shared the zucchini appetizer, the Caesar salad, and the special of the day, red snapper....More

A lovely summer evening on the patio! But we have also dined inside here as well. The zucchini appetizer was outstanding as was the calamari salad because neither one was deep fried! We also enjoyed the salmon bruschetta. The gnocchi with mushrooms was light, the...More

Went here with my husband last weekend. Although it was 6:30pm on a Saturday night, we were still early enough to get prime seating on their patio without a reservation. Let me tell you, this is probably the most charming little spot in the city...More
