The brick walls welcome you like an old friend to a place where the music complements the surroundings rather than overcomes them. The service is quick, the menu is plentiful, and the prices are very reasonable. From the appetizers to the main course this is...More

What other reviewers call cozy strikes us as somewhat cramped. With meat dishes served on little grills, the 2-top tables are hard to manage, space-wise. The environment is busy but pleasant. With respect to food and drink, at our most recent visit, two pieces of...More
