A cozy restaurant with great service, food and atmosphere! Whether you choose something from the menu or a dinner special you can't go wrong and the staff can't do enough for you.

“Thank Goodness Great Options across the street!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

The owner of this restaurant is a rude jerk with no customer service skills... they ran out of most of the specials and it was only 7:30... ran out of there signature dessert on a Friday night. Had a problem with our bill and the owner wouldn't leave the bar to talk to us. NEVER AGAIN... I'll go across the street to Cafe Itri, the foods better anyway!!

We have been dining here for at least 10 years. The food and service are exceptional. It is a small intimate restaurant great specials and menu. A must try.

“Never again!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

Way too loud, too small. Owner wouldn't take his own gift cert because we used a coupon. Funny, he took our CASH when we bought the gift cert. Had our CASH in hand for quite some time. "Sorry, those are my rules". Well, my rules say you just lost 4 customers (at least). Great business sense.....
