Loved their homemade cavatelli in white clam sauce. They have really nice meatballs also along with yummy warm bread. Very pleasant lunch here.

We had a nice dinner with the family. The chicken picata was delicious. My choice of pasta was penne and it was cooked perfectly. The desert cart had so many choices. Great experience.
