The restaurant was very quiet with only with 2 busy tables. The setting was very nice.The service was good. We had the heirloom tomato caprese which was ok but nothing special.The house made pasta was good. Overall nothing exciting but decent food.

Swift and very accommodating service. My appetizer of octopus salad quite tasty if a little too salty. Main of duck confit with lentils excellent. Very good wine by the glass. The place is quite popular and the background noise is high. Valet parking available
