All this was accompanied by a delicious white wine. Despite the generous helpings I still found room for a dessert, and to mt delight they served... More

I used to sell these lovely people their Italian wines and managed to eat a lunch there at least once a month. They have tried hard to maintain as much " italiano" as possible in food and atmosphere.

Really good restaurant! The gnocchi was the best I've had and the patio was quaint. Good specialty drinks, as well. If you're in the area - give this a try - you won't be disappointed!

Good, hearty food. A little out of the way, but worth a try. Staff eager to please and crowd looks like satisfied regulars.

Great local Italian restaurant! We loved the feel of this restaurant and because the diners were all greeted by name by the wait staff, we knew there were lots of returning customers. The service was excellent as was the salad we shared. Both our pasta dishes were tasty and cooked perfectly. My favorite part of the meal was the wonderful... More
