Our meal was fantastic and the service was spot on. From the moment we walked in it was like we were special guests. I had a pasta dish with shrimp and scallops that was amazing. We will be back.

Went for dinner with friends. As always everything was great. Frank is a great host, his daughter made us feel at home with the service. Nice wine list and excellent pasta dishes. I had the trout special, it was perfect. Will be back soon.
