Very good meal. I had the Eggplant Parm. It was above average but not great. The house Chianti had little to no flavor but the Cab was good. Everyone else enjoyed the flavors.

Quaint little establishment. Phenomenal food! Excellent staff! I exclaimed “Oh My God” three times while eating because the food tastes so incredible. Aundria was an all around great waitress.
