Pretty good food, and eager, but erratic, service. Warm atmosphere; brick walls, open kitchen, cozy and modern. Poor wine selection for less than $50/bottle; lots of interesting stuff over $50. Call me cheap, I guess. However, we got tasty wines by-the-glass. Appetizer of Bufalo Mozzarella lacked any basil, and "summer tomatos" were gassed. "House-cured" proscuitto was good, but also lacked the featured goodies (I couldn't find any speck or guaranciale!). I had anticipated the Pappardelle with Mushrooms, and it was very satisfying...fresh pasta and hearty mushrooms. Not only was the quail garnish unnecassary, but it did not add anything to the dish. Also, the menu said "shaved truffles", and I could not detect any. The waiter seemed to rush us to order (the house was only half full on a Saturday night), and then the food came out too quickly. They serve a white bean dip with the bread that is fantastic! but we couldn't enjoy it because the waiter removed the bread when he brought the apps. He had recommended the spaghetti with stuffed lobster to my wife, and when she ordered it, he said they had run out. To compound his error, he said that the couple next to us had ordered the last two, but we noticed later they they did not. We may be tourists, but we aren't stupid. She had instead the lobster ravioli, which she said was OK, but not exciting. The waiter redeemed himself in my wife's eyes when he brought us complimentary Limoncellos after dinner. Desserts were OK, molten chocolate cake with "hazelnut" gelato/mousse but it was peanuts. Lemoncello cake. Tasty.
Pros: good selection of interesting pastas
Cons: the menu gets a little ahead of the food
