Whether you are looking for Italian or Latin cuisine, this is the spot. The menu offers light options and heavier dishes. The wine list is well balanced offering wines by the glass and higher end vintages. Highly recommended!

Cannot believe we had not visited sooner. The zucchini blossoms filled with ricotta, the stuffed pork chop, the veal saltimbocca, Cesar salad and home made tiramisu washed down with a super Tuscan. There you go, you don't even need to pick you dinner. Outstanding.....

This is an interesting and small dining experience. some tables are high tops, so if you don't like sitting that way, as for a regular table. You can see most of the chef prep area from part of the restaurant, which also has some charm....More
