My associate had the chicken breast with penne in an alfredo sauce which was also excellent. Great food, great atmosphere, great prices and a waitress who loves her job!!... More

We had lunch here and was greeted and served by a friendly and warm waiter named Ivan. I've eaten Italian food all over the world and this place ranks in the top 3 that I've ever had. I highly recommend it and will be returning again soon.
