Our regionally inspired, rustic Italian food comes from recipes we've learned in homes throughout Italy. You're not likely to find many of our dishes elsewhere.
Our cooking is primarily governed by the seasons. The menu changes from week to week--when the season for something starts to taper off, it's replaced with something better.
We search out the best ingredients we can locate, preferring local and organic producers when practical. We even have our own sources here and in Europe for several key ingredients.
Beginning with antipasti that include artisanal salumi, house-flavored olives, and our freshly made breadsticks, you’ll enjoy Italian dining free of clichés and punctuated by savory, richly flavored dishes.
To accompany our food, we’ve assembled a very large list of affordable, often little-known, but always high-quality Italian wines at very reasonable prices. Many are available in quartino carafes, so you can enjoy several at a single meal.
