IF YOU LIKE ITALIAN FOOD AND ARE HUNGRY

A classic salad/antipasto bar that can be a meal in itself comes with every dinner entrée. Over 20 items and very good minestrone soup. Very complete Italian menu at average prices. Good wine list and inexpensive house wine. Older setting but it is part of the charm. Very good service. Can be... read more

One of the few salad bars left. Chilled plates, fresh lettuce, sliced cold cuts, and fantastic minestrone soup. It is included in your dinner. Great variety of entrees to choose from.

The 'small print' in the menu is what made this good value, because prices were all-in. The inclusive soup and salad bar were unlimited, well presented, fresh, plentiful and provided an excellent range. The main dish itself was a generous portion, very well cooked and efficiently served. The open fire added to the convivial surroundings on a chilly May evening.... More

This was such a good place to have dinner after a long day of wedding venue hunting! We did find out that they do have an event room and do catering! Yummy!

Took the family out for dinner. It was my son's birthday and his choice. He loves this place. The dinner comes with an extensive salad bar and minestrone soup. The entrees are healthy portions and a good value. Had the Osso Buco myself, and everyone enjoyed their entrees. It is a place we will visit often.

Great choice. The tiramisu... More
