Our group of 3 really enjoyed our night out for Italian food. We ordered pizza, pasta and seafood and were not disappointed. Our meals and appetizer were absolutely delicious. Our waiter was excellent and the service was prompt.

Really impressed with the service and quality of food, everything went perfect. Fetuccini with seafood impossible to best. Even tough we had the "poor's menu" everything was fantastic. Don't forget to ask for day specials or "rich's menu" 😂😂😂

They will deliver as we got ours delivered when we were there. They do take a long time or at least when we ordered. they told us 50 minutes and it was at least that. Great Pizza though.
