Even though a large rehearsal dinner was going on, we had great service. The owner, Paula, made everyone feel welcome. We had the Friday night special that was quite tasty and our server Danny, was terrific.

The restaurant is charming and the chef and his wife acting as hostess are also charming. There seemed to be a lot of local PG people there. The food was excellent; the bread was terrific. We will be back when next in PG.
