Very good meal! Tasty and reasonably priced for Italian food. Service was quick and very friendly server. The only downside to this restaurant is you have a wait to get in but that is to be expected with this quality of a meal!

You owe it to yourself to try this restaurant! The food was excellent, fresh, delicious ingredients. The free flowing garlic bread was to die for! The service outstanding - ask for Frank the waiter, he took great care of us. Reservations recommended...Such a great place to meet friends, or a family dinner...even for a little romance!

I've had minestrone soup all over the country and I have to say that this is some of the best I've ever had. I'd go just to eat the soup. Really nice people here. Never had a bad experience.
