We had another great dinner here (last one was two years ago and it is better). I had the pasta with seafood and it was excellent. Lots of shrimp, claims, and squid. My wife had the gnocchi and again excellent. It was a great meal all around.

Fresh, hand-made pasta and Italian specialties. Super good and very reasonably priced. The chef himself even came out to make sure we were enjoying our dinner. Not fast food prices, but worth the splurge.

Very nice atmosphere with low lighting and Italian touches. The service was terrific and the foccacia before the meal was scrumptious!
