There is something fundamentally wrong with a place's understanding of hospitality, honesty, and truth in advertising when it charges 18$ for a bowl of pasta that is the size of a large coffee mug, or $13 for a dish of 5 (!!) raviolis. All this...More

We love this restaurant! Their zucchini and mushroom pizza with fontina cheese is just insanely good. And what a cool venue, right by the river. We've gotten used to the patio. We'll miss it in the winter.
