Then the waitress asked us again if we wanted bread... More

This is a "Cajun-Italian" restaurant. I had the Nona's Lasagna with meat sauce and it was excellent - the pasta was cooked just right, the cheese was creamy and the sauce was perfectly seasoned.

Come hungry!! The pasta with the chicken piccata was excellent and the chicken was good too although I prefer more lemon. Our server, Mike, was funny and attentive and informative without being overwhelming. All in all a good and comfortable place to eat especially after a long drive.

Upscaled diner fare, with nice sampling of Italian specialties. Good food, well-prepared and tasty. Excellent service, friendly and efficient. Only problem is finding the restaurant from the main road: the signage is inadequate and (night) lighting poor.
