Great food but very rushed as only told on arrival that we had 1.5 hours! We were offered the dessert menu but told no time to eat it! I won’t be going back.

We love this place! Besides having the best butternut squash soup I have EVER had, everything we've had on the menu has been great! We are a huge fan of their red sauce and smoked tri-tip. They usually have great homemade desserts (its not daily,...More

Our first (and last) visit was prompted by a recommendation from an acquaintance who eats there frequently. First, the patio tables and chairs are uncomfortable. The sandwich and soup combos are pricey for this area. The minestrone was thick and rich, but overly seasoned and...More

What's up with the patio furniture! Came with a group of old ladies and had to sit on those hard heavy chairs difficult to move in and out. Furthermore, the table top is metal mesh and when my friend spilled her drink it went right...More

Tried this restaurant recently for lunch and was very disappointed. I was surprised at the wrought iron seating and table, was very uncomfortable. They over-season their meat sauce, all I could taste was oregano and bay leaves, was terrible. The other 3 people in my...More

This is a new business. It well worth your time and energy to find this restaurant. It is located on the second floor. An elevator is available for those that find stairs too hard to handle. The food is fresh, and the outside atmosphere is like a home garden. It is very refreshing when the weather is below 90 degrees. Lunch time is perfect. They are open Mon. - Fri until 8:30.
