Local Itallan restaurant that has stood the test of time as well as the pressure from chain restauarants. I love their homemade special salad dressing that you can buy and take home with you if you like it as much as I do.

Owner greets you as you enter and that sets the tone for dining here. A great choice when in the mood for Italian. Love the pizza! Bread made on premises and served with a delicious seasoned dipping oil.
