We discovered this little gem and I’m glad we did!! Our family of 12 enjoyed everything - pizzas, pastas, veal, fish. Everything was delicious and service was fantastic. The owners who served us and made the meal were lovely. We would visit again.

In all fairness, it's a lovely little restaurant with very nice food and attentive service. However,in further fairness, I must say BEWARE when you get the check! Parties of 4 or more have an 18% service fee included in the bill. Nothing wrong with that...More
