Went last night for the first time. Very nice small space, tucked away off of Centre Street. Food was very good and an excellent value. My wife got the Sauteed shrimp with linguini in a plum tomato sauce for the bargain price of $12 ($16 if you arrive after 6:30 as they have several $12 specials between 5-6:30); this dish was very tasty. I opted for the Seared Scallops with Mushroom Ravioi and grilled portebellos in a lobster porcini broth with truffle oil. Honestly, I could detect neither lobster, porcini or truffle oil in the broth but the 6 fairly large scallops were nevertheless excellent, still a very satisfying dish. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Sounds delicious - we live very close by, and wondered about the $12 specials. Were the scallops $12 too?

      No, I believe the scallops were $24. They had 4 specials for $12: 4 Cheese Ravioli; Shrimp with linguine, Penne with Bolognese and Fish and Chips. By the way, I failed to mention that we also got a side of hand cut fries which were excellent, perfectly crisp. As far as the specials, they end at 6:30 PM and we arrived around 6:25 but did not place order until around 6:40 but they said because we arrived before 6:30, we would still get the special price.
