Very tasty meal: I had salmon cooked just right (crispy outside, tender inside) on spinach fettuccine with a white wine & butter sauce. Delicious. My wife loved her whole grain spelt fettuccine with a white wine and olive oil sauce with sliced dried figs, caramelized...More

Good quality nuvo Italian food. Their well crafted homemade pastas and sauces are their trademark. I also enjoy their polenta. Not a place to go if you're dieting.

Fresh-made pasta is something special. Reservations are definitely recommended. Sit upstairs to see all the action, sit downstairs for something cozier and more subdued. Sit at one of two tables in the front window to feel like you're in your own little, wonderful world. Service...More
