Outdoor dining here tends toward the teeming on a good summer night. Several tables stake out a generous portion of the downtown sidewalk during lunch or dinner, shaded beneath white umbrellas. The summer specials are still up in the air, but spring specials include beef tenderloin tip and a portobello spinach salad, a chicken-and-basil-pesto pizza, and a sautéed shrimp ziti primavera. Ownership is shared with the next-door steak and seafood restaurant, Fiamma Grille; between the two, live music comes with dinner on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
