“Good fine Italian!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Based on all of the reviews, we decided to have lunch here - a little gem for sure. Lovely specials like kidney, and mussels....we had traditional pizza and pasta - there's an Italian mama in the kitchen for sure! And all at a reasonable price! Recommended!

“Food with a difference”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

You would have to go a long way to find this kind of atmosphere. It's so beautifully old school with hand written slips after your meal and with the personal touch you get every time you go there. The food is delicious and the service is impeccable. My favorite restaurant with wonderful owners and staff.
