My absolute favorite dish was the Italian white bean with fennel soup. Wonderfully delicious full of beans and onions and tomatoes topped with a Parmesan crisp. We also had the Spuzzulia - which is the chefs choice of 5 small appetizers. They were all very good. Loved the atmosphere, the relaxed setting. Not a new modern place but very nice and comfortable.

I loved this restaurant! It’s the best Italian food in the city. I’m Italian and I honesty think that their menu is authentic with fresh ingredients and perfect techniques. The service was professional and friendly. Price affordable. I highly recommend it!

We had a reservation for a 'dining room table' for Christmas Eve dinner yet were seated in the bar. When we inquired about the matter were told that they were 'sold out' for the evening. When we pressed further, as there were 5 empty dining room tables at the time, were told that the tables in the bar ARE 'dining tables' and that "bar seating" is actually sitting literally at the bar (not buying it). We felt the hostess completely dismissed our concern about the seating location and ended up at a table behind the host stand in front of the entry door with 13°F weather. If it hasn't been 7:00 on Christmas Eve we would have walked. This warranted 1 star. Our waitress was excellent and saved our night-her customer service could not have been better. The food & a hand-crafted cocktail were also excellent. The food, cocktail and wine warranted 5 stars (hence compromise rating of 3-stars). The vibe of the place is more relaxed with exposed brick and reclaimed wood. If you're looking for a nice dinner there you can wear jeans and don't care about sitting in the bar, this is your place. If you're looking for a nice restaurant with white table cloths and more ambiance, look elsewhere.
