After scoping out the menu and reading some reviews it sounded like the perfect cozy dinner spot for a small group in my neck of the woods (N Seattle!) - and it was just as I had hoped! Service was very warm and friendly; it wasn't too loud, but there was enough background noise; the ambiance seemed very Italian (tablecloth, vignettes, etc.). I ordered the gnocchi and it was absolutely WONDERFUL. I do think it was one of the best gnocchi dishes I've had - definitely better than the new Gnocchi Bar in Cap Hill. The gnocchi were soft and light and the gorgonzola cream sauce was incredible. Incredibly velvety rich but with the right amount of cheese - four kinds. (Is there such a thing as too much cheese? I don't know. But it didn't cross the line). The gorgonzola and parmesan were the most recognizable flavors but I'm sure the Asiago & Fontina added their own subtle elements. The dish was pretty rich, so I boxed half to enjoy later. My friends all seemed to enjoy their dishes,. I refrained from trying since they had gotten more meat & seafood-centric dishes. I also loved that the menu was clearly marked with vegetarian/vegan friendly options. <p>I came here for a little birthday dinner.
