I’ve only been here for lunch, so am somewhat amused by all the reviews that focus on the dim lighting! It is a very cozy place, and that is part of what makes it so comfortable. In my many visits I have never been disappointed...More

Don't assume it's closed because it's so dark from the outside. I needed the light from my phone to read the menu. Got there at six - you need reservations - the place was full. Seats perhaps twenty people. Maybe the kitchen was slammed but...More

I should give it 1 star to try to keep this place a secret. Seats maybe 25 in total, this intimate gem is perfect for a romantic evening. The food is spectacular and the service is incredible.

Had a great dinner at la spaghett. The pasta choices are plentiful. I had the chevre pasta and my husband had the pesto. Both were delicious and the portions were large: enough to take home for lunch the next day. The service was very friendly....More

We celebrated our 50th Anniversary celebration with our siblings on October 14, 2017. The food was unbelievable! Everything was delicious, attention to detail on the appetizers and desserts. Servers were so accomodating, we weren't rushed. Our favourite place for dinner.

No... If you mean are they licensed, then yes and could potentially ask to see ID if they suspected people ordering alcohol were under 19.

No, but you would feel out of place if you went in after leaving the beach in shorts and top. No ties needed, no suits either. But this is a place people go on date night and to celebrate so most people are dressed... More
