Great atmosphere but too loud to talk across the table. Food was above average in the area. Easy parking.

Wife and I stopped in on a Monday night and the place was pretty much filled up. Food is always great as is the Sangria. Pistachio Tartuffo was also great and Sergio our waiter was fantastic.

Waiter never checked on our table only once. We had to help ourselves to the water pitcher left on a cart nearby. We went there for lunch and both ordered grilled chicken paninis thinking it might be faster: it took 40 minutes to come out....More

I always ask for tap water. However, if you do not ask you might be served bottled or sparkling water. Those offering come with a cost depending on how many bottles your table drinks.
