Northern Italian and Mediterranean cooking distinguishes this classy, popular place. The staff is friendly and the setting is both intimate and festive, if a bit crowded. The zuppa de pesce, a medley of seafood sautéed in olive oil and garlic and finished in a white-wine, herb-and-tomato broth, is a specialty. Make sure to come hungry—the portions here are huge—and expect a long wait during prime hours in season. Use the call-ahead wait list to get a jump on

We visited this place on a Friday night in July. We were seated on the back patio, which looked pleasant enough. Everyone liked their meals. I ordered the halibut special, which was not cooked all the way through, but was alright. While clearing dishes, a server spilled marinara sauce all over my white shorts, down my leg, and on to my sandals. I asked the server to remove my dish from the bill. One of the owner's came over and told me they
would pay for the dry cleaning instead. I told her that the shorts were ruined and I did not want to try dry cleaning them. She proceeded to tell me that the stain was not that bad and my wife should know how to remove the stain when she does my laundry! That is when I took offense and told her that was not good enough and she walked off. When we got the bill, we found they had added the tip in with the explanation of large party. We had 5 adults and 2 babies! We paid the bill in full minus the tip, which roughly equaled my meal. Our party went our separate ways once out on the street. I was alone carrying my one year old daughter when the other owner who was also the chef, ran up behind me on the street with one of the waiters. He proceeded to yell at me in a very threatening manner while I was holding my one year old daughter. I felt very threatened. I explained myself as I had to his wife, turned my back, and walked away. These people should not be business owners with the way they conducted themselves. I would warn anyone and everyone against visiting this place of business.
