Do avoid this restaurant. The service was rude and less than desirable, the salad had hard, unripe tomatoes, canned corn and shaved carrot on ice burg lettuce. The polenta was served as tasteless small slabs and the presentation of food lacklustre. We dined on bland...More

We all enjoyed our meals here. The garden area in the back is especially nice. When it started to rain they rushed all six of us in to a nice table. We just had the usual pasta dishes and pizzas but everyone liked it.
