Great experience. Loved the food. Inventive and delicious. Excellent service. There was noise but it wasn’t so bad that we couldn’t hear each other talk. New on the top favorites in Cincy. Will go back many times.

Lot´s of good seafood here at this place which is located conveniently only 10 minutes from downtown. Really good Italian Inspired Sardinian Baby Octopus Stew, Swordfish meatballs and Smoked Trout. Really delicious.
