The atmosphere is that of a small town upper end cafe. The music immediately puts you in the Italian mood with Como, Bennett, Sinatra and the likes. The lighting is soft not dark. The Italian wines and beers that are offered again keep you in the mood. I have taste about everything on the menu and have had nothing I wouldn't recommend, But being a spicy person the pasta with the spicy Italian sausage is my favorite for a full meal. If I'm in a casual mood then I share the Picata pizza and get the Italian salad for two.
The atomsphere is so relaxing that I leave in as mellow a mood as posible.
