On the brink of their first business anniversary on Oct. 10, Massimo Felici and his wife Deya are gearing up for a celebratory bash for that evening.

The feel-good Italian restaurant has small plates, large plates, sandwiches, a meatball menu,  variety of appetizers and entrees and a bar with intriguing spirits and a carefully selected wine list.The restarant is relatively small with seating for 22 in the dining room and eight at bar. the homey, vintage feel it conveys makes a big statement.
