A must try. 4th visit and will return again and again. Never disappointed. Chicken parm delicious, shrimp scampi, mussels, wonderful pasta dishes and endless selection of pizza pies. And for the deserts .....yummy....chocolate cake my favorite. Full bar, affordably priced.

This is fourth visit to this restaurant. Always great food and excellent service. This time we had pizza and lasagna; both were extremely good. The fresh bread with seasoned olive oil is sooo good.
