Cool, Cozy Atmosphere, Excellent Food & Drinks

The restaurant is really cute with a Vespa in front of it. There’s an outdoor patio in the back that’s also cute and nice for when there’s nice weather. It’s actually huge, though it doesn’t look like it from the outside.
The food was really good and the martinis were fabulous.

Dishes I tried:

Gnocci with butternut squash

Really good gnocci with cubes of butternut squash in a creamy, but not too creamy sauce… Very good!

Great Food, Great Patio!

This restaurant looks pretty small from the outside… but in the warmer months they have a pretty large backyard patio that would totally surprise you. The menu changes seasonal… so you know you are getting fresh ingredients and everything I have tried has been perfectly seasoned and full of flavor.

Dishes I tried:

Spagetti Squash w/ Shrimp

Great Pasta and a Patio in the Back.

I wanted to try out this restaurant ever since I walked by it on 2nd Avenue and saw the cool Vespa outside. I always wanted to ride one, so I tried the restaurant. It has a really pleasant outdoor patio in the back. You can’t do summer…

Great Homemade Pasta

The pastas are all homemade and flavorful (go for the orecchiette bolognese!); it's an awesome place to have a quit dinner for two but even a larger party is ok...very warm and cozy.
