We had dinner on Saturday November 26. Food wasn't good. Salad soggy, fish bland and expensive, soup poor. Other items not good. My gf said she will never return. Prices similar to most other center city restaurants. Service slow. All around pretty bad experience !

Dropped in for an early dinner on a Thursday. The staff was most welcoming and let us pick where we wished to be seated. They offer a very enticing three course prix fixe dinner. Nice selection in each of the sections of the menu.

They are from Naples, they know their job, they are friendly and nice - and they offer the best Espresso in town, really like in Naples, with hot cup. Just perfect. Good food, although not exceptional, but fresh and tasty.
