Be sure to call ahead for reservations The place is small although they recently expanded. Service, food, and atmosphere is terrific. Good for an intimate dining experience. Everyone in our group enjoyed their dinners.

My husband and I went for dinner. Cute local restaurant. Very intimate setting. The service was excellent. My dinner was just ok. Very expensive for what I ordered. I would recommend trying it.

Stopped in on a very busy Saturday evening. The recent expansion did add more tables, but the flow was a bit odd. There is no place to wait for your table. But the excellent food more than offset the wait and the noise.

Dined on a Friday evening and had the Swordfish special that night. One of the best pieces of swordfish I've ever had. Cooked perfectly on a bed of risotto!

Historically I rate restaurants based on their soups, sauces & dressings, as I believe almost anyone can grill/sauté beef, fowl, fish. Prior to our most recent visit we have never been disappointed with anything on the menu. The warm bread with roasted garlic & olive...More

The restaurant itself is only one tiny room and accommodates perhaps 25 people (plus a half dozen or so at the bar). You would need to reserve most of the tables!

there are parking spots in front and all around the area. I don't remember meters, as it is in the evening and you don't need to feed a meter after 5 or 6 pm. Parking has never been a problem. If there is nothing right out... More

For seating at the small bar, people usually are waiting to get in at 4:45. It would be next to impossible to snag 5 seats at the bar (only 7), otherwise. Good luck.
