I always come to the deli for a nice dinner with friends in a casual and relaxing environment. Their steaks are great, pizzas and pasta delicious. Buy a wine bottle from the deli and drink it with your meal. Great place.

I don't have any of their menus. The casual side is where you buy Italian products and deli. They have tables in there for eating.
