Really charming fun place to eat. They have a nice outdoor area with live music during the evening. Good food and very friendly staff. The yum yum pasta and several of their dishes are great!

The staff was so friendly! The service is quick. The food! Oh my, the food! Don't walk, run to eat here. I'm angry at myself for waiting so long to try this place. Stop reading reviews and just go. Seriously, right now.
