Came here during restaurant week 2018. Two courses lunch was $15. The food was amazing, especially the soft polenta with snail. Very creamy but not too much. Grilled salmon was delicious also, with the lavender honey, unexpected but I loved it!

Excellent house-made pastas, fresh fish choices, specialty drinks, Italian focused wine list, non-pretencious but efficient and attentive service all added up a wonderful dinner experience.

Had the lobster bisque and mussels. Passed on dessert. Quick, competent service with luxury food (price not too high but a little light on the quantity for a big dude like me).
