My family and I ordered food from here for my cousin's rehearsal dinner. We placed the order a couple weeks in advance and the restaurant could not have been more accommodating. We ordered several trays of pastas, chicken, eggplant, and salad. The food was made...More

Our flight back East got delayed and we needed to eat dinner out. This place is quite simply a gem. The best pasta we've eaten since our trip to Italy. These cooks know how it's supposed to be done. Everything is first rate.

Food was delicious. I ordered a calzone which was huge! The only thing is that there was only one server in the whole place so service was very slow. Please add another server at lunch time.
