The wine by the glass selection was excellent, the food was ok. Pretty sure it comes from the same kitchen as the buffet. I had the caprese salad and was bummed that only two basil leaves were included. I also had garlic shrimp...very tasty.

Lunch was very good the wood fired pizza was very tasty. Service was prompt and attentive. The decor is a little dated and dark but not a holdback to eat here.

There are many flavors of gelato to choose from and they change some of them daily. I asked for lemon the first day and they didn't have it. I checked back daily and on our last night there, lemon was in the case. Well worth waiting for. YUM!!

For several years my wife would avoid this restaurant. why we never knew but once we got her to try one of the pasta dishes we eat there at least once a month. My favorite is the Spicy Sicilian Pizza but another reason we truly enjoy it is the friendly, and excellent service we always get there.
