The wine selections are good and the menu has a wide variety of Italian specialties. Dinner came with garlic bread, but we skipped appetizers... More

My wife and I met friends who wanted to return there for diner. We had not been there in many years. We had a nice warm feeling upon entering and were greeted by a very friendly waitress. I enjoyed the shrimp bisque and the Amber beer on tap. I did not enjoy the veal with eggplant with cheese that I... More
