We order the huge antipasta platter, meatballs... More

Great restaurant for moderately priced, delicious food! Had the best time with our party of 8, four kids and four adults. We had the loveliest table in the window. Fantastic service! Delish risotto, pizza and linguini & meatballs. And insane bread pudding!! Definitely eat here!

Food was good but pizza was not cooked to my liking. I like a crispy piping hot pizza . It was delivered warm, do I sent it back saying I want it crispy and piping hot. Second time around it wAs done to my liking. Otherwise I thought the seasonings could have been better.
