Went there last night for hubby's birthday. He had a hungering for osso bucco. This is a nice neighborhood restaurant with good atmosphere. there were three of us and we started with a shared order of calimari - cooked to perfection with an excellent spicy marinara sauce. Two of us had the osso bucco, which was fork tender, very tasty and served with the best saffron risotto any of us had ever tasted. The other dish was rack of lamb, done to perfection and served with baby carrot, green beans and roasted potatoes. We shared desserts of gelato and fruit tart. The service was outstanding. With a bottle of wine, the tab came to $141 before tip. We will definitely go back there.
