This place is very nice. It's small and out of the way. It's like you just walked into a little restaurant in Italy. The couple that own it are from Italy. He does the cooking and she does the serving. The food is very delicious.

We are a group of 8 people who are attending a nearby musical event from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. Would you be able to seat us for appetizers and/or dinner entrees about 7:00 pm?
