A group of friends and I met one day for lunch. It is a busy place but worth the wait. They have a great selection of lunch options. Wait staff extremely friendly, never let your cup run dry type.

Pleasant atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly and fast. Food was great, however, I ordered the zuppa tascono soup which was tasty but it was mostly broth, hardly any sausage, potatoes or kale in it. The ravioli di portobello was delicious!
