A cute Italian restaurant, locates in midtown west. It has a pizza/bar Trattoria e Vino Tavolino, a few door north, in the same block.

The most striking feature is their tiles: kind of like Chee Hsin tiles‘ #120/170 and #110.

The service: we arrived without reservation at 5:20, on a Friday. They seated us immediately. By 6:20, they started to turn people without a reservation to their bar Tavolino because the restaurant was pretty full. We got the bill, paid and left, even I would have liked to stay a little longer.

Food: didn’t blow me away but decent. Their house wine Montepulciano red is very good, would have it again.
