Each time I go, it's packed solid, and for good reason - yet somehow, they always find a place for you. The service is given with a smile, even if it is a bit sporadic (the service, I mean, not the smiles). No matter - friendly service wins me over every time.
The food is rather hit or miss for me... great cheese plate, not bad osso bucco, good pizza, poor risotto, orgasmic carrot cake, ho-hum creme brulee. But food, as always, is subjective. But I admit, it's prepared properly, with care, and with good presentation, whether or not I happen to like all the dishes or not.
My only complaint - I ordered a whisky sour; it was neither whisky, nor sour.
This is a late night spot with ambience and generally good music.
