Hubby and I went there for the first time last night and were really impressed. We were able to eat at the outside tables and since it was half priced wine night, enjoyed some really nice beverage.

We could have made a meal on the wonderful olives and bread at the table, but given that we needed something to soak up all the wine, we decided to split the antipasto platter (with buffalo mozzarella, white bean paste, caponata, caper berries, etc.). It was very interesting, though the cheese would have benefitted from a sprinkling of sea salt. My husband had the rigatoni with duck ragu and I had the gorgonzola pizza with carmelized onions and fresh herbs. Everything was delightful, the service wonderful, and the cost of the meal perfectly reasonable.

We will definitely be going back. Thanks to all the Baltimore chowhounds for turning me on to this place.
