Be sure to have your GPS available as this quaint Italian Restaurant can be a bit challenging to find. Once you arrive you will find a pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff and a menu sure to satisfy most everyone.

Great pizza. Italian specialties can be found here. Small room great for meetings or a small party. Eggplant Parm is excellent, as is the pizza. For something different try the meatball pizza, a specialty here.

Can’t say enough about the food here. It may seem an out of the way place to go for Italian, but it is well worth it. Staff is friendly, menu extensive. A single ravioli is bigger than the palm of your hand. Tender delicious pasta....More
