I was not very pleased with what I ordered - raviolis with pesto. The service is just okay, not bad though. Romantic environment and nice wine selection.

Very good italian food. Higher priced menu but worth every penny. Pasta is very fresh and the sauces are excellent. Excellent service. Intimate to tight spaces. Parking for the restaurant is a bit confusing.

We were pleasantly surprised. After having read a review by another family similar to ours, we had great reservations about going to this restaurant. We read about poor food, a pushy chef, rudeness, etc, etc. But, we had some certificates from a Wild Rose Vacation...More
