“Favorite Italian Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We found this restaurant by chance a few years back while taking a drive around the area looking for a decent place to eat. This place a diamond. Best chicken parm i have ever eaten. Since then, I have been working my way through the menu and there is nothing that I've tried that I don't enjoy. Some of my favorites are, of course, the chicken parm, chicken marsala, chicken picatta and shrimp scampi over linguini, and their salmon is excellent as well. They will even make something for you that isn't on the menu if you ask for it. I have told many people about this place and they all have told me it was a great recommendation. I know my italian food, and this place is top notch. The owner and staff do a great job making you feel welcomed and make sure everything is made to your liking. Can't say enough good things!
