A simple dish, pasta, garlic, olive oil. It's easy to prepare, but so few Italian restaurants have it. Great service and wine too. I was surprised this place wasn't busier, evn on a Tuesday night.

I usually go after their dinner specials here. Menu items that are standard are the Fantasia Linguine and their Lasagna. I have yet to be disappointed here.
