This cozy restaurant pretends to serve modest little plates of French- and Italian-inspired food. Like risotto balls (saffron-flavored and stuffed with braised veal). Or pizza (otherwise known as "asparagus and crescenza cheese flatbread with spring onions"). For a small-plates restaurant the portions are humongous, and so are the flavors. Except when it comes to the French fries. There are never enough French fries.
