A nice place. We were here for lunch but will work for dinner as well. Good service and the food was good as well. The interior is not the most modern but neat.

A coworker and I visited this restaurant after work one day and shared the raviolis and gnocchi. We both judged the place as average. The food was alright, nothing special. There are so many great restaurants near this one I probably won’t go back.

All of our dishes okay, nothing exceptional. Our waiter acted as though we were bothering him by being in the restaurant. He even argued with us about our choice of wine. Have a more pleasant evening elsewhere.
