Six of us went for dinner on a Friday night. Restaurant was busy. Service is friendly and efficient and the food servings are generous, served hot and are all very tasty. This is an ideal spot for a relaxed family dinner.

It was a set menu for $60 a person, shared bruschetta and a shared cake (red velvet, wish it was something Italian) at the end. I feel like the apps were missing flair, it was ceasar salad and cream of mushroom soup. There was a...More

Ate there last Friday and it was very different from beginning to end. The apps, meatballs and sausage and peppers were very good. As was the dessert, canolli and a pastry with Nutella. The mains just weren't up standard. I had the carbonara and my...More
