AAA Inspector Notes
The storefront restaurant borrows its name from the Italian, and it lives up to its definition on a nightly basis. There is a certain charm, glamour and fascination, with its saffron-colored walls, minimalist decor and cosmopolitan menu. Pastas are made in-house, and the pappardelle with braised beef, caramelized onions and shredded Gorgonzola just about nears perfection. A romantic and relaxed mood predominates. The establishment has no liquor license, but there is an excellent selection of fine wines available to purchase from a local shop, which they will deliver pronto to your table. The server will provide this separate menu.
