Seafood entrées include cioppino and yellowfin tuna with eggplant caponata. I was tempted by the tuna — unlike bluefin tuna, which I (reluctantly) swore off a few weeks ago, you can still find sustainable yellowfin — but I went with one of the two fish specials, mahi mahi over a sweet-potato mash. The fish was perfectly cooked, the surface golden brown, the flesh meaty and tender, and the sweet potato added just the right accent of sweetness. A very good meal.

The wine list is brief and highlights Italian varietals. Bottle prices are reasonable, but the by-the-glass selection struck me as inflated. Service on my visits was excellent; professional but unobtrusive. I especially liked how the staff managed a multicourse meal where three of us had an appetizer, a soup or salad and then a main course while the fourth person had just a salad for his entrée — all of which was juggled around a very small table.
