White tablecloths, off-white walls with original art and subtle opera fills the space. The hospitable owner spends most of his time patrolling the dining room and kissing regular customers on their way in and out. The chef occasionally peeks his head out of the closet-size kitchen to ee who the owner is schmoozing. Classic Italian: carpaccio, Caesar salad, mussels in plum tomato sauce, pappardelle alla porcini, grilled chicken in a balsamic vinegar sauce.
