My wife and I had a great dinner here last week. The place was very busy, fairly noisy but that seems to be the mode recently in new restaurants. We had some appetizers that were good, mostly antipasta etc but not remarkable. Then on to the pasta course......WOW....I had the orriechiete with lamb sausage and dandelion greens and it may have been the best pasta dish I have ever had and I like pasta!! My wife had a fresh home made ravioli with a orange butter chile sauce which was very good too.
For our entree we split the NY strip which is different then the norm, seasoned with rosemary and olive oil and cooked perfectly medium rare. They have an all Italian wine list and either the waiter, ours was Chris and he was great, or the owner who works the room can help you with your selection.
All in all one of the better meals I have had in a while! No reservations and no real bar to sit so come early or put your name in and take a walk in the aera.
