Dined here with children who are young adults, well traveled and possessing discerning palettes. (Spoiled. 😁) We were greeted and seated promptly, having used OpenTable to secure a reservation.

My daughter and I accidently found this restaurant and we had dinner there. It was rather too dim to read the menu but the food was surprisingly delicious..We might bring a flashlight! next time.

It’s not the traditional Italy food with lots of cheese sauce, very good in many way, like the salad with a Asian flavor and the spaghetti was delicious. The restaurant located by itself, very grand and open, in the summertime there is outside area for...More
