This is a hidden gem! Everything was so good and the atmosphere is great! My husband and I shared the muscles and chopped salad. The beef brisket Gnocchi is so good! I recommend getting the large portion because you will want leftovers

Meal average. Eggplant fries were cool and warm, like two Vikings had been mixed. Just a suggestion: when one is escorting a 94 year old lady on a walker, the hostess probably should not say "just a minute," and walk away leaving her standing. It...More
