While others give this place a great rating, I can't do the same. The food was average and a bit pricey. I wasn't wowed and I love Italian food. I wouldn't recommend or go back if given the opportunity.

Wanted a quiet meal on a Sunday afternoon. Sat near the bar with a couple of other families and ended up by myself and it was quiet and great food. The server named Sunshine lived up to her name. Made my day.
