This small Italian Bistro is truly a hidden gem. Located on a small side street in the heart of Victorian Village, many locals are unaware of the treasure that exists in their own backyard.
The cozy interior has approximately 12-15 tables, while the outside terrace contains quite a few more. The food is fabulous, the ambiance is romantic and warm, and the patio is full of energy. The menu is full of hard to choose from entrees. The baked ricotta gnocchi are fluffy, light pillows of pasta with delicious truffles and pesto, the chicken scaloppini with pasta in an artichoke-tomato salsa is full of rich flavors, and the braised beef short ribs drenched in an espresso BBQ sauces is scrumptious. Everything is so appetizing that it would be easy to visit here every day for an entire week and still want more.
