Delightful Ambience, Meal and Service
We arrived on a rainy weeknight without a reservation but were seated without a fuss. We had the flatbread pizza Margherita, seafood with angel hair pasta, tiramisu, and two different red wines--a rosso and a pinot noir. The food was excellent with a tasty white cream sauce--not heavy--with the seafood. The mussels had been well-scrubbed with no beards and no sand. The little bay scallops were not overcooked nor was the shrimp. The serving was just right--not huge. Flatbread was very large for an appetizer; it made a whole meal. Wines were not served in wine glasses but in tumbler glasses. The wines should have been chilled more but one added ice cube did the trick. Tiramisu was surprisingly good although, alas, not having true ladyfingers. But the cake was light and not soggy. There was jazz playing but it was sufficiently muted to allow for lovely conversation without shouting. Nary a TV was in sight--blissfully. We plan to return and next time will reserve a table in advance. We had a lively conversation with the owner/chef who visited us at our table. He is very attentive to details!
