I love cozy Italian joints hidden away off the beaten track. The food is beautiful and delicious at this new gem, the wine list is white focussed, the room is wooden walled, the kitchen is open, and the menu is well thought, simple with some starters, pastas and a few desserts rounding it off.

I recently dined at this wonderful pasta joint that’s situated in the heart of Railtown. Specializing in fresh hand-made pasta, the service is family-style with an emphasis on sharing, and that I did with my friend Yash. We started off with the delicious all beef, Luigi’s Meatballs ($14) followed by a couple of pastas which were both outstanding, the Ricotta Ravioli & Heirloom Squash ($17) along with the Pappardelle & Duck Ragu ($19). Finishing off our meal we both loved the Olive Oil Cake ($8) followed by the rich Chocolate Budino ($8).
