There was nothing about this place that we did not love! Service was attentive and friendly. Food, excellent. Standout dishes were the grilled Octopus, the Pork Cheeks and the Short Rib Fettuccini. Love these BYOB places, let’s us bring our favorite wines. We’ll be back!

I like their lemon cake. I've had the tiramisu and creme brulee. They have a cheesecake but I'm not sure what else. It is a small menu.
