My friend, Courtney, discovered this hidden treasure a while back – at that time, you could walk in any day, any time and get a seat….nowadays, it’s reservation or no go on the weekends. Think white tablecloths, fancy wine, and great southern Italian food. Being from southern Italy, or eastern Ohio, whatever – I think I’ve got a pretty good handle on what makes a good Italian restaurant + this place has it all. Good red sauce – very hard to come by in the city, I have noticed…my favorite is the tilapia, served with capers, olives, and tomatoes. Have a shot of limoncello for the perfect after-dinner treat. The chef told us they make homemade ravioli every day – yeah dog….and I would say anything served with sage butter is to die for.
