Rustic farmhouse elements prevail among a lively bistro with morning breakfast and lunch seating, while a more formal dining room remains open late with waiter service and extravagant wine list. The surrounding store offers a trove of housewares as well as florist and gallery with live music program.

An extensive antipasti menu includes larger appetizers from cauliflower puree to polenta with egg and seasonal salads. Pasta course is a delight with regional specialties that lead to main course of grilled beef, suckling pig and baked cod.
