The food was excellent. The hummus with pineapple balsamic is a must. The staff were nice and the food was fresh and hot. The drinks are served in frosted mugs.

Hi Nancy, Our largest table fits 6 people and it's right next to a 4 top, so 10 is not an issue. Note that we do not take reservations.

We feature over 30 different Extra Virgin Olive Oils (EVOO) and Aged Balsamic's along with artesian foods from local producers...Pasta's, Pickled Products, Mother Kombucha Fermented Teas, Holi Moli Cheesecakes (they are incredible!) and we'll be adding other items as well. Our Bistro allows you to have a light snack, lunch or dinner and taste the EVOO's and flavored Balsamic's paired with food. We have a nice selection of menu items ranging from salads, delicious raviolis, linguini's with mussels and panini's in addition to specials. Think of a Tapas like eatery where you can sit down with friends and order several items that you share together. Our beer menu features craft brews from the USA and Europe and our wine offerings are a selection from around the world.
