The food was wonderful! We had the angel hair soffrito with shrimp and the pene bolognese. Drinks were good also and leave some room for the tiramisu. The staff was great, super friendly and helpful.

We were vacationing and wanted to eat somewhere nice downtown, this fit the bill. The environment was laid back and the decor was interesting. We had the dates for an appetizer, different entrees, and the chocolate cake for dessert - we enjoyed everything.
