This is what Italian dreams are made of

We drove all of 3/4 miles to this restaurant on the basis of TA reviews and have now returned perhaps 5 times, so we've been consistent. This place is good. And good value. And delicious.

The pastas are good and you have choice of meat or fish sauces. The fish is fresh (great red tuna) and same with the meats.... More
