Choose anything from the menu and you will not be disappointed! Mick's homemade pasta e fagioli is amazing...any special is a sure fire winner. Have special requests? No problem, they cater to all our "could you add" requests. Try Il Forno's pizza...to die for!

They really make an effort here. Very American- Italian, but flavor and food friendly. Everything was delicious form their caesar to their house salad. You must get their house dressing...Good! We enjoyed their white sauces as well as their red sauces. The veal parm and the eggplant were both wonderful. Cannoli for dessert!

This place is AWESOME!!! I ate there tonight with my wife and aunt while visiting my aunt for a few days after I read the TA reviews and took a shot. Boy was it awesome.
