We went here a couple of weeks ago and it was great as always.  Not only is it the best Italian food in the area it is one of the best restaurants I think.  I hate to advertise it too much because it may start getting crowded, but on the other hand I want them to get plenty of business and stay open.  Since it is such a small place I made a reservation a few days ahead of time.  When we arrived the place was about half-full, meaning there were about three groups already seated.  Yes inside there are only six to eight tables.  There is also seating outside in and enclosed room with one table.

To start with they bring out bread that was made that morning.  I could make a meal from just the bread, foccacia and ciabatta.  The special that day was ravioli stuffed with mushrooms and truffles.  Three of the five people in our group got the raviolis and it was very good.  When use the bread to sop up the sauce from the main course you know it is good.  I had the Bolognese, which I have had before but it is so good I can’t seem to order anything else.  Donna had the shrimp and noodle dish (I forgot the name).  Actually I have never had anything bad from here.  We had the tiramisu and some sort of meringue dessert.  Both very good.
