This place is cash only, just a heads up. It's a great restaurant, with nice specials at a very good price. Make sure to ask which pastas they make in house that day. We had the fresh made gnocchi and it was delicious! Enjoy

Can't complain about anything, but nothing special either. Good food with a relaxed atmosphere, but expensive. Veal Ravioli tasty but small portion, organic chicken with almonds nice. Overall reasonable experience.
