I imagine this is a local treasure. The butternut squash ravioli was sweet and the white sauce delightful. The carbonara was tasty with bucatini, ham and a creamy sauce. This is a place where you could linger and enjoy conversation. Take your time.

I originally ordered the side salad, but then saw there was soup and salad for just 2$ more, so I changed to that. Salad is always delicious, but the soup had rice, and egg, in a tomato broth. Really good!

We ate here twice in five days and enjoyed both the meals. For vegetarians - the Capellini is delicious - a large portion so sharing is recommended. I would also recommend the Antipasti Arrostito. Great service too!
