If you’re looking for a homey ambience and some homemade recipes, this is the place to be! Italian comfort food at its best. All ingredients used are fresh, especially the pasta. I’ve always loved having dinner here–it’s just so heartwarming. My favorite would be Fettucine ai Fungi e Tartufo, fettucine pasta tossed with mushrooms with a drizzle of aromatic truffle oil.
