The food was okay, but service was very slow and we were seated next to a large and boisterous family. We won't return for a dinner for two. The gluten free options are also very limited.

Good Italian restaurant. Can recommend Calamari Abruzzi (so good we had to return to taste again), pizza ok. Good ambience (maybe a little quiet early evening), very good service and half price wine bottles on Monday night (worth a visit even without the cheap wine).

This Italian Bistro has consistently good food! It's been around for quite a while, and I have never had a bad meal. There's a nice variety to the menu without being overwhelming. I've also attended a few private parties here that were really nice.
