This is an excellent restaurant. It is small and located underground.You will need to get there early or the wait can be long because it is so good!

Average Italian Resturant, the only notable thing were the marinated beans on the antipasto! We split two entrees with 3 people. Shrimp/asparagus with white sauce over pasta was the best, but needed more shrimp. Italian sausage cover in pizza dough: too much dough! Reasonable.

This is a small restaurant with great food for reasonable prices. Pasta dishes run around 15 bucks and include bread and a sherbet for desert. Service was fast and attentive. Simple food; excellent for families.
