Very good BYOB place. Some dishes are better then others, but they all very good. Highly recommend octopus, skate wing, and baramundy. Everything seasoned and cooked to perfection.

The ambiance is so-so but the food and the service were outstanding. Grilled octopus should not be missed. The presentation and the service did the meals justice. There is public parking close by and spend a little time strolling the historic neighborhood before or after...More

Tried this new hot spot with friends on a weeknight. All entrees and appetizers were excellent. I enjoyed the gnocchi, which were soft and pillowy and my husband thought the beef was terrific and perfectly done. Our friends enjoyed their fish entrees. We don’t eat...More
