We went here based on a friend's recommendation... The decor is very nice & more upscale than the neighboring restaurants. I am not a fan of restaurants that don't include a salad, soup or even some vegetables with a full priced, not inexpensive, meal/entree. To add a side salad to any meal/entree was 6 or 7 dollars... My husband had... More

The restaurant has a rich history & has been in business a long time. The service & the food are superb. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food, and the servers are... More

My multiple visits continue... More

I judge Italian food by ordering pasta, bolognese sauce and sausage. This had to be the best Italian meal I have in a long time... Wine selection was good, and prices were reasonable. Service was incredible by our waitress "Deely"??? She really made the meal.... gave us suggestions of taking our SUV out on the beach for a ride... she... More

Food was excellent. I had shrimp scampi and hubby had shrimp and scallops. Large portions, excellent service. All for under $50! Will definitely be going back!
