Juliana did an excellent job managing our order for 7, 4 of whom have serious allergies. The menu is basically Italian with a wide range of options - pastas, fresh fish, steaks. Highly recommended and not too expensive ($180 + tax) for 7

My go-to order is the seared Halumi cheese with a mixed lettuce salad. Fresh, tasty, the bomb! There are great gluten free and vegan options as well. It's a cozy place with a nice wine list.
