This lively restaurant has all of the charm of a tiny European coastal café. Sunny paintings and brilliant colors bedeck the walls. Lush foliage grows everywhere, and an imported Italian wood burning stove glows in the background. Known for its flavorful tapas, the menu celebrates the succulent entrees of Italy, Spain, Greece and France. The wood-oven-baked pizzas are popular, as is the Eggplant Parmigiana. For dinner, the family style Paella de Mariso is divine. Order a dessert if just to observe the masterful designs created by the pastry chef.
Located near the Pearl Street Mall, this gem of a restaurant is like wandering around only to find Bruce Wayne's Bat Cave. It is worth finding, however, for it offers great Italian fare at great prices. Bright flags hanging from the high ceiling cast an Italian Alps type feel to the room. The ambiance is both urban and casual. Pizza is the main draw and features odd topping choices such as shrimp, artichokes and chopped clams. Specialty items include Chicken Fettuccini and Stuffed Shells. All of the pasta is homemade. The outdoor patio is the place to be during warm weather.
