We sat outside in back and had absolutely wonderful pasta...when my husband asked for some parmesan cheese for his dish the lovely young Italian woman who brought our dishes asked if he had tried the dish because it was "really" not designed to have cheese on top...he had not tried it but took her advice and the dish was wonderful. She was genuinely concerned that his request would change the dish-she was right. This is traditional home cooking and pasta. This is a small, friendly neighborhood restaurant that is definately worth going out of your way to try. MAKE a reservation!
