What a nice place to have an Italian dinner. The food was good home- cooked Italian and the service was excellent. It is a nice place for couples and for a family dinner.

Spaghetti sauce is good. Not acidic tasting. Our waitress is Daughter in law of the woman who makes it and it is made fresh every morning.
