Took 7 others with me for this delicious meal and amazing wine. We did a bunch of appetizers to share and then I had the pappardelle pasta which is my fav. Didn’t disappoint. Had the chocolate gelato for dessert.

Not your typical italian restaurant. The food and service were both very good. From appertizer to the main meal and desert we enjoyed what we ordered. Place is small and gets noisy when full. You will need reservations and look for a place to park. Also some of the meals are expensive.

After the great reviews published recently we tried this place out tonight. We were so disappointed by the food. Both main courses were under seasoned and the homemade pasta was very chewy, suggesting it’s not fresh. We mentioned how disappointed we were to our waiter who shrugged and said sorry. It was kind of an odd reaction- he didn’t ask why or what parts were disappointing. Very large bill for a dish I make better at home.

Visited on a Tuesday night and service was exceptional from all despite it being busy, particularly the waitress (Tammy we think her name was!). She was very knowledgeable on everything we asked particularly the gluten free options (one person has Coeliac disease).
The food was delicious, we had the Carbonara and fish special for main and pan a cotta and peaches for pudding.
Highly recommend a trip, even the sweet treats on payment were yummy.

Despite a small and modest facade this is an excellent restaurant. They service, wine selection, and cuisine are all first class. Prices are reasonable and worth every penny.
