The food is so fresh and the portions so big. Their bread is to die for and salad so tasty. The raviolis with cream sauce outrageous. Great house wine. Pasta mmmm. Excellent Tiramisu. Awesome service and great prices.

This local restaurant has great food, generous portions, reasonable prices and accommodating servers. Our family has eaten here twice so far this year, and I attended a luncheon that was held here last month. Try it; you won't be disappointed!

Has business dinner with client March 7th. This is my favorite Italian place for dinner or lunch. The meals are cooked fresh to order. I have eaten here since 2004, but this was my 1st return trip since spring 2011. I recommend this establishment highly.

We are looking to schedule a family lunch there but a member of our party is handicapped. Is this restaurant friendly to handicap people in terms of getting in and out?
