This was our first visit to the restaurant. We were very impressed. The artichoke appetizer was amazing and very rich. I had the bronzino which was very good and the pasta was perfectly cooked al dente

Why just settle for an over priced sandwich at your run of the mill restaurant when you can dine in a luxurious setting and get a real meal for around the same money. The portions are large and made to order so if your in...More
