In this Italian restaurant the experience in whole is better than the sum of its parts. The food is tasty and the atmosphere amusing. The dishes are thoughtfully put together and the prices reflect it. Fresh herbs are grown just outside the kitchen window in a neatly fashion. The “Lumache” antipasti dish is one of my favorites, paring escargot with crema bel paese cheese in a light pastry served in a garlic tarragon sauce that pleasantly flavoursome. Dinning alone or with friends I find my experience always pleasant especially when the service is spot on, engaging and just plain old fun. The décor hasn’t changed much since the place opened in ’85 but with such a warm reception and oodles of regulars they must be doing something right.
