The main attraction is the good price. The price of the main includes appetizer, dessert, and coffee or tea as well. Good price, Yes. Food, just mediocre.

I have experienced this restaurant several times now. Each and every time the service is excellent with the food being even better. Personally I like the Duck as well as their trout dish

This place is hopping, so you need a reservation. (It is not a huge place, and the only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 was because it was so busy that it was noisy.) The staff are very friendly, personable, and attentive. The food was very good. The three course meal is a great deal. It included an... More

Really busy place. Reservations only. Great service. Servers are fast but friendly too! Mostly Italian restaurant but I had the duck special and it was amazing. Gnocchi looked great and so did the veal parmigiana. Would definitely go back.

This is my favorite restaurant in the area for Italian food I hesitate to recommend it, because, it is so popular it is almost impossible to get a reservation for the same day.

Make a reservation as its busy most of the time. Wonderful specials. Choose your entree and it includes soup or salad plus dessert and hot/cold beverage for that price. Pleasant waitstaff, small cozy atmosphere. Food is served hot and in a timely fashion. Really enjoyed having dinner their and will go again.
