The food and service was great. Indoor and patio seating. The prices were a little high but not unreasonable.

We've had good and bad experiences here, with both food and service. We're glad we gave it another try.

Cafe calamari serves consistently good standard Italian dishes. The patio seating gives a beautiful view of the lake. Wine selection is nice too.
