I was brought here as part of a business meeting. The quality of the food is very good. I tried the spaghetti frutto mare which included clams, mussels, and octopus. The pasta was home made (a big plus) and the octopus was also good quality.

They have their own farm for growing produce. I enjoyed a mushroom risotto. The cocktails are outstanding.

If you have a lot of time and no place to go, you might just like this! Food was good but service was slow! Old Frat house next to U of O campus.
