So much potential here but it is squandered! Gorgeous private patios to eat in and HUGE back outdoor area that is lovely. HOWEVER, we ordered our meals and waited over an hour for them. I ordered the pesto penne with chicken. It was pretty good...More

Walked by this place several times before deciding to go in on a recommendation of a friend. On one side it looks fine dining and on the other is a bakery. But if you walk through the bakery to the back, the space opens up...More
