Family brought us here for celebration. Wine we wanted from the list was not avilable and the alternative suggested was only fair. The salads and pastas were all excellent. Veal and pork were the best.

These folks advertise that they have the best happy hour in town. They may be right. Extraordinary selection of exc excellent wines by the glass. Small foods were tasty and appealling. Serice was polished. Not a place to go in your old paint stained sweatshirt.

Nice pasta dish. Poor waitstaff experience. Cannot read into the mind of another, but the message seemed to be "You're lucky to be here and to have us waiting on you." Unexpected disappointment!

Entrées run from $11.00 to 18.00. The lunch menu is not as extensive as the dinner menu but the offerings are similar. Also, the restaurant always has off-menu specials at both lunch and dinner.
