Had dinner there last night with one of my bosses. Some background that I know, it hasn't been open that long. Located across the street from the Townsend hotel, and I believe shares owners with Tallulah (which I love). Premise of the restaurant is high-quality Italian food with as many locally sourced ingredients as they can.

Interior is nice. Warm, cozy. great ambiance. Fantastic date place. They have some small tables, and then bar-top style seating around the bar and anti-pasta station.

Food. absolutely delicious. We had some prosciutto. My boss is a very picky eater and he really liked it. Not too salty, great flavors. I had the grilled sardines. Very good if you like small oily fishes. For entrees, we all had different pastas, and each one was excellent. I had the caccio e peppo. simple dish of pasta, cheese and pepper. But it was simply divine. My gf had pasta with lamb meatballs which were superb as well.

Everything was fantastic, but the value. To be honest, the portions were microscopy. The prices were already slightly high, but throw on the itty bitty plates, and the ratio drops dramatically.
