Stopped for a light lunch and was able to be seated outside. We each had a pasta dish and both were very good. A good choice.

Went here with some friends - food was OK but nothing spectacular and on the expensive side for what it is in my view. You're better off visiting one of the other super nice places in town (and there are plenty!)
