Hit the spot!

Stopped for a late lunch with my son. I was undecided and sought the recommendation from the staff- fresh turkey sandwich and what a choice! It was fabulous!! I am from the east coast so don't get the opportunity to have avocado to much, but what a compliment. My son had the Egg Plant Parmisian. He... read more

Typical family Italian restaurant. Casual seating, nice decor, but not fabulous. They took care of us quickly as walk ins on a busy night which was very nice. Seating more for groups than couples. Food was excellent! Reasonable corkage fee. Service was good, not great but it was a busy night.

We overheard one of the waiters say this to another table. It was true. The service was stellar. Food so so. My manicotti florentine was tasty but not exactly hot out of the oven when it got to me. My husband had the pasta puttanesca which neither of us liked. Best part was dessert. I had spumoni ice cream and... More

We enjoyed a very nice mean this weekend. Our server was a delightful young lady, very cheerful. My husband had the putanesca which he very much enjoyed and I had the chicken with jalepeno cream, yum. We would return to this restaurant without hesitation

People always talk about the quality of ingredients but really, a lot of things taste the same. This lunch experience was great. We loved our food and can't wait to go back. The spaghetti with spinach was so fresh and light with high quality sundried tomatoes. Loved the torpedo also!

Spent an evening here as part of a group of 36 people. This number didn't phase the restaurant at all. The food was tasty, hot and on time. With so many of us picking different things from the a la carte menu the service was amazing. Great venue with great service and quality italian food.

We celebrated a birthday here and the food and experience were great! We told them we were there for a leisurely meal and they brought out our appetizers and entrees accordingly. We tried several appetizers including the calamari, brushetta, and the fried zucchini and all were pretty good. It's a good place for basic Italian fare done well. Nothing fancy... More
