Outstanding place for lunch. Wonderful selection of salads, sandwiches and deserts. Never had a bad meal there. It can get crowded so try going a bit early. You will absolutely go back. Never have done evenings there so can't report on that.

Always good food. Unique salads and sandwiches. Gelato of course, but the portions of food are big so I rarely get any dessert. Speaking of desserts, there are many to choose from and again, portions are large. I recently learned that after 3 pm, they...More

I've passed this place many times and finally stopped for lunch. I was pleasantly surprised. In spite of the name, the place looks more Caribbean, but it is Italian. I had the Caesar wrap, which was very good, but there was, pasta, panini's, etc on...More
