    Dined here the first weekend of opening. Had a good experience. Scallop app is terrific, escargots were average. Any meat dish is excellent, each of us tried pork, I had the chop and my friend had the shank (similar prep to osso bucco). The duck looks fantastic too. Had simple chocolate tart for dessert. Service was friendly. My only complaint was lighting - be prepared for a bright dining experience! Enjoy...

      We ate there a couple of weeks ago. I don't remember the appetizers in any detail, but I had a lamb shank for main dish and it was HUGE. Also good. My husband had fish which was a normal portion. We didn't have room for dessert. The food was good and the ambience was pleasant.

        I had the same experience. My husband and I shared two appies and two entrees and we were so stuffed! The prices are extremely reasonable and you receive a lot of tasty food. I especially liked the lamb shank and pork shoulder. For appies, we had the escargot and scallops and both were delicious. I remember that they had good bread. Bring a hearty bottle of red wine.
