Good food selection with a menu changing regularly and daily specials. The pizza is not too big (personal pizza) but tastes great! The entrees and salads are great too! Nice outdoor seating to enjoy the nice weather or the live music coming from the Frankfort stage. I guess we'll come back on a regular basis :)

I said we were wanting dinner and turned to leave, but the hostess encouraged us to stay. We ordered both our... More

It was a beautiful evening to dine outside and it was a delightful experience. Drinks and appetizers were wonderful and then a variety of main dishes were shared which were delicious. Service was fantastic and a most enjoyable evening.

We made a reservation for Mother's Day brunch and although they had a Mother's Day special, we ordered from the regular menu. We ordered calamari, bruschetta and caprese salads. The bruschetta is amazing! Food is always good when we done here.

Their outside is very cute and cozy. I enjoy everything here from the start to desert. Especially desert! The sauces and combinations within the pastas are always pleasing.
