Absolutely a hidden gem. We've dined here many times and are never disappointed. We prefer the al fresco tables as the interior is quite small but no matter where you are seated the service is excellent.

The place is charming. New owners and new chef have made this place a delight. They completely renovated the restaurant. We had Chicken Florentine & Lasagna Bolognese & they were delicious. Sauces are made fresh daily. We highly recommend it.

Food was OK, was not a fan of the "side pasta" that came with my chicken picata. Servers were kind and personable, the hostess was curt and rigid, which came off as rude. Overall, I would probably go to Olive Garden over this place.
