Good food, small portions. Live music with a good guitar player and singer sounded great! They added vegetables to my pasta for a small charge, which I appreciated.

We went to this restaurant on 13 April 2011 and it had opened just a week beforehand. The decor, both inside and out, was novel and really tasteful. Food was delicious and service great. Even the owner came up and asked us personally how we found the food and service. I'd highly recommend a meal here!
