Our goal is to serve you a delicious meal, inspired by the food traditions of Northern Italy. Our dishes are prepared with ingredients we're proud of:  seasonal and local produce, sustainably raised and sourced seafood, and humanely or organically produced meat and poultry. All of our breads, pastas and desserts are made in house.

Our dinner menu is inspired by Italian techniques and recipes, but our dishes aren't out of place on a New England dinner table. Our recipes are created to take advantage of the best seasonal ingredients and locally sourced meat and produce.

Our wine list is built around the wines of Northern Italy and we are happy to be able to serve you a variety of wines.  We offer a variety of beers, all brewed here in New England. Finally, our cocktail and spirits program highlights Italian spirits and craft cocktails made with freshly-squeezed juices and house-made garnishes.
