Just opened yesterday. Food is wonderful! Usually service is the area that needs the most help when a place first opens but the service was very attentive.
I had homeade pasta with brocc rabe and shrimp for an appetizer the rabe was probably the most tender rabe i've had in a long time.. cooked perfect. Dinner I had Chicken Veal and Shrimp with shitake mushrooms in a delicious garlic white wine sauce over spinach. Chicken and Veal were cooked perfect and the shrimp had the tails removed (a pet peeve of mine) and also cooked perfect. I also tried the artichoke hearts breaded and sauteed with a honey mustard sauce... another winner!
The place is beautifully decorated and seats approximately 35. Once this place catches on the lines will be out the door on the weekends.
