We didn't manage to get a table indoors, and so we sat outside. The area was dark and not well lit, so that was not the best place to have dinner with the family. However, the food and the service made up for it to some extent. I would return, but I will not want to be seated outside again.
Wonderful Italian cold cuts and cheeses. And pasta is superb. Great ambience and knowledgeable service staff. And good selection of wines. You can also order stuff from their sister restaurant Pietrasanta next door.
Excellent small bites with a full menu too Cosy place love the atmosphere Try the happy hour specials Good range of wines at reasonable prices
