The wait was just 10 minutes and it was worth it. The service was very good and the food was too. I had the Cioppino and was not disappointed. Go for it. Great wines too.

I feel a bit bad at only giving a 3 but there was nothing out of the ordinary and very much as expected. Food was good quality but not out if the ordinary and to be honest what I would expect for the price. The...More
