spinasse, homemade pasta, good wine, creative vegetable dishes, great ambiance, perfect company. really enjoyed the brussels side, wild ramps with soft boiled egg, salad of cauliflower three ways, and cabbage special. our dinner was paired with a barbera that was well balanced, fruit forward and dry – delicious.

the housemade egg pasta with butter and sage sauce is a signature dish and came highly recommended, but didn’t end up being our favorite thing. it lacked the execution and refinement that defines most simple pasta dishes. it was surprising that an italian restaurant making homemade pasta would pair a delicate angel hair pasta with a butter sauce, turning it into a solid congealed mass. the beet and gorgonzola stuffed pasta was more interesting but also lacked flavor and that extra something to bring it all together.

overall i had a good experience but was definitely disappointed by the pasta dishes. i’d still go back and give it a second go.
