We often go because it’s consistently delicious & the staff is pleasant. I always enjoy the house salad & pasta with meat sauce. The chicken/eggplant parmigiana is also a good choice.

Great food and cookies. Lunch there before noon to get there before the rush. Squash ravioli had too much butter in the sauce but still delicious.
