My salad was very fresh, with a great mix of greens. I had seafood spaghetti that was delicious and loaded with seafood. My waiter suggested a good white wine to go with my meal. Sorry to say that I didn't try the desserts. The place...More

The food is just average, but the location and ambience are nice. Good place to sit and people watch.
