TripAdvisor Rating Based on 47 reviews

This charming restaurant welcomes diners with tantalizing smells and an inviting atmosphere. Expect frequent appearances by owner/Chef Greg Gordon who has prepared a menu full of comfort food and classic Italian dishes.

Begin with house-made bread topped with figs, caramelized onions and pecans before sampling the warm spinach salad. Entrees include pastas and brick oven pizzas as well as grilled fish and meat including rack of lamb and pork chops. Guests are welcome to bring their own wine--the restaurant charges a $5 corkage fee.

The wine room, coined “The Cool People Room” by owner Greg Gordon, is a cozy addition set apart from the main dining room that exudes the feeling of old-world charm with its vibrant red coated walls, adorned with paintings created by Gordon’s uncle.
