This place has it all: great food in large portions, friendly service, fun atmosphere, easy parking, and huge cocktail list. The phantom gourmet definitely got this place right! Also try the eggplant rollatinis!

Met two friends for drinks and tapas early on a weekday evening. Perfect venue - cosy booth, attentive service, absolutely delicious martinis with amazing choices. Tapas were good. Too much parm on the artichokes, but chicken marsala delicious.
