Read the reviews here or elsewhere. If you are looking for something authentic, this is it. Don't judge by exterior, come in and enjoy the food. I waited too long. The anti Olive garden. A hidden gem.

We've been here several times and it's my favorite place to eat. It's a small cozy setting run by a husband and wife. The food is authentic and delicious. I feel like I'm dining at a friend's house.

This is authentic Italian food! We chose an assortment of items from the menu and loved our dinners! I can't wait to go back.

We recently had dinner there. Everyone in our group loved their dinners. As an Italian I'm especially critical, but the food was wonderful. We will be returning often.
