We received excellent service and the quality of the food and how flexible they were in mixing and matching ingredients was great. Generous cocktails and a variety of sangrias, too. I had a veal chop which was prepared beautifully.

This is one of these places that you asked yourself Why I haven't discovered it before?. Very cozy environment (noisy at times) with soft background music makes your visit very pleasant. The crew is very nice and attentive. The menu is pretty limited, but everything...More
