We had a fabulous time, great food, terrific waiter (Leo) and the price was right. We ate here on a Friday night at :00 p.m. We had made reservations, which may not have been necesarry, and sat right down in this cozy (about 7 tables upstairs) small room. Easy view of the plates comming out of the kitchen, which all looked an smelled better than the next. I would highly recommend the Malloreddus alla campidanese ~ Classic Sardinian pasta dish served in a savory meat sauce made with sausage, lamb, diced vegetables, red wine and tomatoes. My wife had the Orecchiette alla pugliese ~ Orecchiette pasta sauteed with extra virgin olive oil, garlic, broccoli rabe and sausage meat, touch of white wine. These dishes were each more than enogh for one (although not really big enough to share), but we couldn't stop eating, it was so good! Nice wine selection added to the meal. Even thought the front door emptied directly into the room, on this cold night, we were comfortable the enitre time. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. He made good suggestions and asked helpful questions about our likes and dislikes. We did not see the downstairs, although a number of very happy customers exited periodically during the evenning. This is not a fancy restaurant - jeans are fine - but the food is just great!
