Very enjoyable restaurant with generous portions of very tasty italian food. Seating under cover, open area, and inside. Interesting with non-italian servers pretending to have Italian origin.

The owner always makes you feel welcome with a cheery smile, and his food is the best Italian on the Island. Always a treat for the locals.
