Dependable consistently good Italian food.

Our local Italian place.Great serving staff, very friendly and accommodating. Sad they took the Fettuccine Salmone off the menu as that was my favourite but the mussels are good so are the lamb and pizzas.

Atmosphere- crowded and not good for a romantic night and seems a little nice to want to bring the kids. Food - average Service - average and nothing special Price- not worth what we paid.

We all had something... More
