We were there as part of a large party. It was prepared with a preset menu. Food and service was good. Wine quality was excellent. Eggplant appetizer was tasty. Lobster ravioli and veal entrees were great. I would recommend this place.

This is a great little restaurant I return to when shopping in the area. In good weather outdoor seating is available. In winter months, the basement rooms are cozy and inviting. The server was friendly and the food was tasty.
