I love going in this restaurant with it's warm decor and being greeted by it's friendly owner or someone on the staff. I like the diversity of food choices. There is nothing I dislike.

Entrée was Pollo Parm. It came with some type of elbow rigatoni. The chicken was good but a little small. The rigatoni was on top of the chicken and I was... More
