Incanto is a very small Italian restaurant that serves authentic Italian food. Not many dishes to choose from, but all are good. a little tricky for older people to climb the stairs, but it is excellent. Spaghetti withthree cheeses fantastic. Good wine.

Incanto is a quaint restaurant with excellent food and a small but excellent selection of wines. It is a restaurant that works well for a smaller business setting but also for couples and friends.
