This little gem in Parkhurst deserves a really good review. Travelling to Italy for business bi-annually, we have an appreciation for good and authentic Italian food. Orechiette with oven braised oxtail & cannellini beans in a rich red wine sauce - pasta cooked to perfection...More

What use to be one of my favorite restaurants has now fallen out of grace, food quality was poor, steak over cooked, unappetizing sauce, ice cream melted on dessert, with little or no focus on presentation of the food
