I had a delicious dinner here last night. We sat outside under heaters and it was lovely! My salmon was cooked perfectly and was very tasty, and the vegetables that came with it were perfectly seasoned. My friend's dish was also excellent (cod). We shared a salad that was tasty and attractive. The only negative comment is that we only... More

Excellent Food, Very Good Service although crowded and hectic. Had reservations, seated at outside patio on a cold night. Asked and received an indoor table.

Chicken Cordon Bleu is to die for. Would drive considerable distances for dishes like these. Have enjoyed this place through two management styles and have never been disappointed.

I usually eat there for lunch because my friends like it. I find their salads, my usual selection, mediocre. The portions are small and I think the price is high for what you get. The service is friendly and the ambiance is nice.

Great wine suggestions for the steak and lamb. THEIR ARTICHOKE APPETIZER IS A DELIGHT FOR THE EYES,,,,fanned out like a flower and just as tasty. Very enjoyable all the... More

I had the combo of minestrone soup which was homemade and lasagna. Others at the table had the salmon ravioli and... More

The food here is usually good. Not great, just good. The outdoor seating is very lovely and quiet if you are near the front. If you are closer to the back, then you get more of the kitchen noise. Service is hit or miss. Sometimes you get a great server and sometimes you are completely ignored. I feel the menu... More

We go there 1-2 times monthly. Never had a bad meal. Basic Italian-light menu. Safe for all tastes. Veal is good, but better down the street at Da Mario. Their menu, on the other hand, is very limited.
