Charming & Quiet

I have been here twice in the last month while in town on business. It's nice to be in a charming establishment that is not a big chain. The portions are huge, delicious bread and the service is decent. I will be back.

This place is a locals favorite. It is located in the shadow of the Horseshoe hotel. Small dining area, parking leaves a little to be desired, but the pluses outweigh the minuses by 100 to 1. Great for a quiet business meeting or a romantic moment. Staff is great.

Had a pleasant dinner here recently with some friends. The restaurant is located in a "suspect" area away from the main shopping district and casinos by the river across the street from a brewery. The food was very good and pretty authentic italian. We ordered the red snapper special, the frutti di mare, the spaghetti and meatballs, the crab claws,... More

Parking out front and down the side of the building. Graffiti on the walls. White tablecloth restaurant. Have been there for business meals as well as a couple... More

It's been around for years and the quality of the food has been consistently great! Very romantic, quaint place with art (for sale) on the walls all by local artists. The food is fantastic. My favorite has always been the linguine with a white clam sauce, oh so scrumptious! The chicken Marsala I had there is fantastic too. The deserts... More

I had the chicken parm and the sauce was excellent. How they make the sauce is a secret - I asked and the waiter responded with a smile that he couldn't reveal it. Highly recommend it.
