The menu is so boring. If you go there more than once every few months, it's fine. If you are regulars, and want to eat there once every couple of weeks, forget it. The menu is good but never changes. So boring

Who knew that this place even existed. The food was awesome. I had the seafood risotto and my date had the short ribs. Everything was cooked to perfection. We were able to eat outside on the side porch. Wait staff was very attentive.
