We enjoy stopping in there for lunch when in that part of town. They have a nice selection of food. it is however a bit pricey for lunch, but the quality of food is worth the cost.

A highly recommended Italian Restaurant that is run by Italian people (the chef seems to be Italian too). Especially for those who miss Italian cuisine, this place is like an oasis in the desert.
