I went to this cosy restaurant recently and got really surprised by the atmosphere, the food and the wine list. First, the restaurant is really cosy, it may have about 10 tables inside and it gets really packed with most people dispatching three course meals plus enough wine to leave the place in a party mood; so, I think reserving a table is a good idea. The place is unpretentious and the decoration may easily evoke a rather old family owned restaurant like those back in the day although there were no Italians among the staff but probably they have an Italian heart. Second, the wine list, short and concise it is well selected for excellent quality at a reasonable price, we had a bottle of a beautiful white from Sardegna which was just $32 (I highly recommend this one). Finally the food, being myself from Sicilian parents I'm prone to criticise food quite severely and to appreciate simplicity and flavour; well, they passed and with an A. The pastas are homemade and in my case I had a papardelle with salcicia arrabiata with happens to be my favourite pasta dish and I have to acknowledge that my 'nonna' wouldn't make it differently. Did not have space in my tummy for dessert but I guess they're also great. Definitely an excellent choice for good italian food. The manager Luis is also really friendly and would do whatever to make your visit a pleasure (it got us a table within 15min even though we did not have reservation).
Pros: Great atmosphere, real Italian food and wine
Cons: Small, but I personally think this is actually great.
