Delicious food -- mostly Italian and lots of seafood. Salads are sizable and they will kindly split them onto two plates if you ask . Try the eggplant parmesan. It's fantastic and you have never seen eggplant sliced so thin!

The food was delicious. The pasta with creamy crab sauce was great. The scallops excellent and different. The service was delightful. A bit pricy but the benefit of BYOB balanced that out. The atmosphere was charming.

VeryGood food, great service, a little crowded and noisy when sitting on the porch with a full house. Noise level is also dependent on the courtesy of those around you.

The food is very good. Some of our favorites are the Eggplant Parm and the fish dishes are also a sure bet.

Arugula salad w/ raspberry dressing looked thrown together. Pasta w/ seafood was very overpriced for small plate. Garlic bread was good. Service fair. Sat outside which was picturesque. This is the second visit. Will not return.

Seven of us came here last night to celebrate my husband's birthday. The salads were tiny and not very flavorful. We thought they had "split" them because they were so small but learned that they were in fact the "full" size. They offered garlic bread...More
