Seems like a hard spot to get a reservation so you may want to plan in advance. Don’t miss the gnocchi appetizer. It is truly special. Delicate and tasty. The fish stew was top notch as well. Mark was our server and took great care...More

Didn’t make a reservation. The place was packed. Another customer was nice enough to move one stool down to accommodate my husband and I at the bar. Great food. Nice conversation with a couple sitting next to us.

We have wanted to go for many years and finally had the opportunity. Excellent- all courses, service and ambience. We were celebrating a special occasion and the complementary bubbly was an unexpected and wonderful treat. We will return.
