We have come back here a few times and never been disappointed. Today we had lunch, the Cali Burger and Sopressata pizza were both awesome. Our last visit we had the steak and egg breakfast, the meat was done perfectly. Always friendly staff.

The reservation is mandatory if you don't want to be waiting. The host was great, service a bit slow. Place is cosy and a between a fancy and pub place. Great polenta, amazing pasta, not such an amazing salad.

We went for dinner and had a great time; good food and rich selection of drinks. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice, but I usually prefer a cozy, casual setting. Overall a great evening, mostly thanks to attentive staff.

It was more of a first meeting dinner so the place and the topics discussed were more memorable. I just rmemebr the pasta/penne which we consumed. Pork barbeque flakes was also good, although I do not recall the exact menu name.
