We go for lunch every now and again. My husband loves the calamari with shrimp. I always lean towards the eggplant parmigiana. The food is consistently wonderful and served with a smile. I love my hugs from the owner, Franco.

Recently, I went to the restaurant for a post memorial service for a dear neighbor. The staff was so accommodating and sensitive to our group's needs. Everyone was made welcome. The buffet was ample and tasty as always. Truly an Italian treat!

I first dined here August last year. I enjoyed it so much that when I visited the city again, I had to go there. Delicious bolognese pasta!
