WENT FOR DINNER AND WITH GREAT SURPRISE, THERE WAS NOT A CELEBRATORY PREFIX MENU.
THEY CHARGED THE MENU WITH MUCH AFFORDABLE PRICES. APETIZERS AT $10, PASTA AT$15, MAIN COURSES AT $20 AND SOME SPECIAL OFFER OF WINE AT $5 PER GLASS.
I HAD AN INCREDIBLE PASTA CALLED BIGOLI WITH PULL DUCK, SECOND COURSE WAS BRAISED SHORT RIBS A BIT TO FATTY AND THE CLASSIC POLENTA PUDDING DESSERT.
CAN WAIT TO GO BACK TO TRY OTHER THINGS ON THE MENU.

    I have been there recently as well.
    I tried the trio tasting pasta,
    I enjoyed the Agnolotti and the duck ragu but didnt like the lasagna that much.
    Also tried a pizza that was ok.
    Overal though good food, good prices. But nothing incredible.

      We were there also! This was our 2nd trip - the first one being soon after the restaurant opened. I agree it was definitely an affordable and tasty dinner, but was not as good as the prior visit. We started by splitting the Ciccionata alla Bolognese (meatballs) and Cauliflower Timbale, the next course was a pasta (which we also split) - Agnolotti Ossobuco. The starters were okay - but nothing really stood out. Entrees included 2 specials - Venison Stew and Stuffed Squab. I enjoyed the squab better; the stew was very rich and hard to finish, but the polenta it was served with was delicious. For dessert we had the Nepolean, layers of flakey pastry and a creamy filling which was awesome. The service was friendly and we loved the $15 corkage fee!
