We had a been warned by a review that this restaurant could be loud and a large party was exiting as we were coming in. It was Halloween and everyone was so friendly. We were immediately seated and the waiter came over and brought us water. He then let us get settled before he came back to see if we wanted drinks. I was struck by not just the waiters polite friendliness but his demeanor, like he wanted me to have a good time and he wanted me to be comfortable in his restaurant. My husband had called earlier to reserve the halibut and he told the person who had answered the phone that it was our 43rd anniversary. We were talking and I mentioned that we had been to Italy and I asked him where he was from. I told him where we had visited and then I mentioned Rome and he lit up and said that was the best place in Italy. We ordered and appetizer of mussels and it was very good. I stayed away from the salads because of my nut allergy. The food was beautifully plated. it came with two thick stripes. I asked what it was and was told one was a saffron reduction and the other was a balsamic reduction. It added an extra something.The Halibut was excellent and it came on a bed of greens. I had asked if I could get roasted potato's instead of mashed and he said of course. They were cut like thick 50 cent pieces and they were stacked up and roasted to perfection. I liked the music that they were playing and could almost identify what I was hearing then I realized that the singer was singing in Italian. Sometime he reminded me of Van Morrison and at other times the rhythm would switch. I even heard an Italian version of Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer. I inquired who was singing and he told me that it was Pino Daniele but he had died. My husband ordered an Italian beer and then when we were finished he ordered dessert. Everything was wonderful. They even brought us a generous slice of Tiramisu with two spoons and a candle for our anniversary.We blew out the candle and had to pack it up because I don't eat sugar and my husband had already eaten the chocolate souffle with vanilla ice cream. This restaurant was perfect. It is family run they make the pasta, the bread and the dessert. I met the Uncle and his son and 2 cousins who made our 43rd anniversary one we will remember.
