Since prices are reasonable, you'll have no qualms about ordering dessert, coffee and after-dinner drinks. The chef works magic with seafood, pasta and pizza. Dishes such as the bow-tie pasta with shrimp and scallops in cream sauce are simple, flavorful and extremely satisfying. Leave room for the Tiramisu. Simple wooden furnishings and dainty hanging lamps add to the quaint ambiance. The dress code is upscale casual.
