This restaurant is no longer in business. Looks like a new Italian place with new owners will be in this space summer 2014.

This restaurant will be missed! We wish the owner, his family, and the loyal staff best wishes in the future. We have been going therr for about 20 years. Not always perfect, but good family restaurant over the years.

Thank you very much for the feedback and compliments. We are working on the loss of 2 key people due to physically relocating so I do appreciate your patience. In a few weeks we should be back to normal TJ Pugliese
