We had an early dinner on a Thursday. We made reservations because I had read it can get conjested, but I guess we were such early birds, it did not much matter. Atmosphere was very nice, welcoming but chic. The waitstaff was friendly and on point. We had the Burrata cheese and Veal Meatballs for appetizers. I loved the cheese. It was just the right amount of food. My boyfriend had the tonnarelli (prepared in cheese wheel) and I had the Capricci Norcia. We ended up swapping dishes because the tonnarelli was on the light side and I loved the flavor. He liked my pasta with the light sauce and spicy sausage. Both pastas were perfectly cooked and the flavor were great. Desserts were phenomenal. The Coconut Tiramasu and the Ciocolatto were both great. Super rich and yummy, yummy. I liked this restaurant a lot and would come back again.
I just started working in the area of this cozy restaurant...I had never paid much attention to it, as to be honest, its quite small and not much to look at from the outside but once you get in, you won't want to leave. I took my girlfriend here for the first time, a couple of weeks ago, and from the moment we walked in the door, we felt so welcome and taken care of, we would just look at one another every once in a while and smile...the loud and hilarious bartender, the extremely charming owner, the friendly staff and then the food! well, words can't describe. my girlfriend had this mustard chicken, which doesn't sound like much, but wow did she love it and obviously i did too. i had the paella, the spanish rice with seafood and chicken and it was amazing. i would definitely recommend this spot and remind people not to judge a book by its cover.
