While appetizers of creamy burrata cheese and antipasto of cured Italian meats are tasty and refreshingly simple, less effort is put into entrées. Seafood could use more seasoning, and breading for veal the Milanese is little more than dry bread crumbs. Even the special veal meatballs could use a kick. Guests relish the ambience of this comfortable, classy tangerine-colored dining room, however, and it is not uncommon to see a celebrity or two at a neighboring table. Stick to the panini and wine list and you can’t go wrong.

This cash-only old-school Italian restaurant is home to amazing food, and frequent celebrity visits (when I went I saw Gigi Hadid, and a friend recently saw Julianne Moore there). I'd love to give this place 5 stars but the service was horrendous. A waiter came up to me and smelled me and said I smelled like I just smoke... even though I don't. The waiters seemed like they had more important matters than helping out the customers. And they clearly treated some customers better and with more attention than others. Most likely will not come back because of the service in itself, but if something like that doesn't bother you, it's worth a trip to this place.

The best Italian food! Friendly and carefree atmosphere with a great staff who are willing to joke around and have fun with you. Their daily specials are written on a board in Italian that they bring to the table to present, and everyone who works there is incredibly knowledgable. The only downside is that there isn't enough space to match their popularity. A must for anyone in the village looking for good Italian food in a low-key environment. Definitely kid friendly. Bring cash! They don't accept credit cards yet. :)
