A most friendly couple runs this place and Chef is very excited about his food. They offer tasting menus of different sizes but he really wanted to guide our choices. The food was decorative but also tasty, which way too many “pretty” places neglect. The cappelletti were divine with a burst of broth inside each piece.

The place has a room to grow in smoothness of service but you couldn’t find a more enthusiastic crew. Everyone really wanted to make your experience memorable and they did just that!
