Went to this place on a recommendation from a friend for an anniversary dinner. We were met at the door with a smile and were immediately graced with wonderful and attentive service by John. He helped to make the entire stay enjoyable. If our stomachs were large enough we would have tried to eat the entire menu. Try a side... More

We discovered this restaurant several years ago while walking down the street and being drawn to the smell of garlic bread. They were giving free samples at the entrance and we were hooked after one bite. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The food is very good, especially the bread! I've had many other selections that were very tasty. My... More

I had a Gluten free pasta chicken dish and it was very good. I love the marinara sauce it was very good. They are pricey but... More

Our group tried different entrees (chicken marsala, chicken piccata, scallops linguine, manicotti, and penne rigati with homemade sausages, along with their garlic bread) and everything was delicious. Service was great.

We were walking by when a waiter standing outside offered us a free piece of their award winning garlic bread and a coupon to eat there. He said they are family owned and will take care of us with delicious food. Well why not? We ate there and were very happy we did. My husband got the sausage, peppers and... More

We ate al fresco that lovely evening. We were,in effect,on the sidewalk but the traffic that evening was practically not noticeable. There were heaters strategically placed around the area to help ward off the chill.The waiter was helpful and courteous and made our Canadian group very welcome . The food was delicious.
