We really enjoyed this little eatery. The wine list was lovely and well thought out. We had the two course lunch and some bruschetta and every bit of it was excellent.

We stop by this enjoyable small restaurant occasionally on the way to or after a performance. Reasonably priced food for the area, nice room, authentic, tasty cooking, great service. If only the music would not be Pandora interrupted with loud commercials.
