Their food is excellent. We had the fried calamari for apps, and shared orders of the seafood risotto, papadelle, and osso bucco. Wonderful flavors and good sized servings. Definitely gourmand quality. But, I really want to commend them for their integrity. After a wonderful meal,...More

Five of us walked in at almost 9:00 after a reading at Mrs. Dalloway's bookstore. Mostly everyone thought their food was very good. I had the cracked crab appetizer - yum! - and the penne alla Norma, which I liked very much. If there is...More
