Service / wine selection are very good. Recommended dish: the pumpkin filled pasta ($9) ... portion is not huge, this dish is an excellent choice.
On tap: Allagash Belgian Ale - wm, 11/16/2007
We stopped by and sampled the special of the day: Mahi Mahi Fish-n-Chips, with aioli sauce .. delicious!
Decent wine list, with at least 30 options by the glass.
Other menu options include pastas, pizza, and chops. The pork shoulder appears to be the signature meat dish.
Our meal was flawless .. except for the fruit flies which seemed to linger around our water glasses.
The bartender was very personable, she taught us some new words in Polish. - wm, 04/12/2012
The menu was interesting, with dishes from the south of Italy that aren't typically featured. The place is LOUD and some people may be turned off by sitting in front of giant windows. I personally don't care about these concerns... The wine list, though small, offered some interesting Italian choices... The antipasti were great. C. - Chris, 07/31/2006
