A quality restaurant at which you will consistently get a great meal. Quality service. Dining room space can be a little tight (close to neighboring tables) depending where you are sitting. Nice outdoor porch to dine al fresco during nice weather.

Starting with the fresh bread and the aioli (from a secret recipe!) and into the cold antipasto, everything was delicious! Among us, we had steak, chicken & pasta. ALL were fresh, hot, and perfectly prepared. They make their own pasta; the mashed potatoes that came with steak were excellent; the vegetables were tender-crisp, sautéed with olive oil. The ONLY complaint... More

The menu is varied-Italian and Continental. The servers are attentive. The owner will often greet you and offer an appertiff on the... More

This is one of our go-to places! Love it and huge portions. We always have leftovers so it's almost 2 meals for the price. Great bread and dipping sauce! Service can be slow but the food brings us back again and again. The owner is there often and will always stop over to see how we're doing. Lovely outdoor dining... More

Our friends arrived shortly before our reservation so when we arrived we met them in the bar. After we each had two cocktails our table was ready. We split two appetizers - Octopus and stuffed mushrooms. The octopus was delicious. The mushrooms were fine. I ordered the veal special because it was veal medallions and it had spinach which I...

First of all we had a reservation for 6:30 for 11 adults and3 children, we walked out at 9:30, service was very slow, we were crammed into a table and the waiter was snippy and acted like we were putting him out. Food was not great, and expensive, he refilled our sodas never mentioning that it was not free refills... More

Been here a couple times as it is right down the road from my house. Its hidden up a side road and in an old house. This is as close as you can get to real home made Italian. Been here with my wife and brought her mom with us once. My wife is very Italian so her as well... More

A nice ride out into the country. The Italian fare is very tasty and well prepared. The restaurant is in a old over-sized house and is very well kept. The menu is extensive with a number of good specials. Go slowly in the parking ot as it is unpaved and has some deep ruts.

First off, we were unable to try this well rated restaurant. We wanted to come here to celebrate our granddaughter's sweet 16th birthday. We called to make reservations and asked if we could bring a small special Birthday cake for her. We were told "we don't allow any outside cakes, it's our policy". Well we took our granddaughter, her cake,... More
