We didn’t have reservations and were told it was a 40 min wait. That was ok, we just explored the lovely Ocean avenue. We returned in 40 minutes and discovered that the hostess underestimated our wait time. We were informed it would be another 10-20...More

My husband and I visited this restaurant after a day of wine tasting and it was excellent! I had the seafood fettuccini which was amazing and I highly recommend this dish. The service was great and the hostess was so sweet and helpful!
