My wife and I came here for our anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is certainly cozy but not cramped, and the food was outstanding. Our veal marsala and shank of lamb were absolutely delicious.

The food is always so yummy; the atmosphere is cozy, but not too tight. They don't take reservations, so come early. Drinks are made well - not too weak! I've never had a bad meal here!
