This restaurant is not a traditional Italian restaurant. It has a more modern decor and a rather lively bar so it can be a bit loud at times. However, the food is very tasty. The menu does not have all the typical Italian things but...More

A relatively small restaurant along the train tracks in downtown RO. A real gem with great food and service. A little noisy and parking is limited to metered parking along the street. We were not disappointed. Would go back.
