Great italian food and good portion size. The service is fabulous and the prices are very reasonable. We get take outs at times since it is so close to our home. Highly recommend without the tourist hoopla.

We enjoyed our visit here during restaurant week. Great specials and 3 course dinner pricing. Excellent service food and wine. The pasta and risotto dishes were superb and fresh. Deserts were also excellent. A nice treat and the staff was very gracious.
