The owner is amazing and makes you feel welcome. The food choices were many including a gluten-free menu. My friends and I enjoyed every bite of goodness.

Made reservations, was seated immediately, warm and crispy bread brought to table, and our server made the olive oil and parmesan dip FOR us... Ordered bottle of Pino and it was perfect temperature... Ordered the osso bucco and it was AWESOME!!! With cheesy... More

Hi. Just out for dinner and relatives. I had the lobster special on resotto. Very good and fairly priced. Brother had some pasta appetizer that was equally good. Sister in law had a crab resotto dish that she felt had NO crab in it. Could not find or taste any crab. It was so bad she did not want to... More

Great food!! We have been here with family and friends. A little noisy. Not sure if you would consider it kid friendly. No parking lot but there is parking on the side street and sometimes on the main street.

Very fresh food. The pasta is delicious and the portions are large. I had some sort of pasta with mussels, clams and shrimp. My husband had lasagna.

Staff is always friendly here. Try the grilled calamari and stuffed mushrooms-they are awesome. Food is always good, big portions and reasonable prices. They have half price bottles of wine one day a week-that makes it even better!

I'm English so maybe I don't get it. I'm sure some people like gorging on ridiculously-sized portions of food but actually this place is precisely what is wrong with a lot of restaurants in the US. My veal Milanese featured no less than 4 breaded escalopes covered in sautéed peppers and potatoes. There is no way a normal person can... More

Noticed the last couple of trips that the service has gone down a bit. Went last night and it took at least 10 minutes before our server came to our table. Placed order and waited a while for the salad. Salad arrived and no more than a few minutes later so did the entrees. There's no excuse for that. The... More
