This restaurant is a great creative setting with some antique art and salvaged wood furniture for a casual traditional Italian-American meal. The Spaghetti Pesto was great and the Vegetarian Cannelloni was also very good! Although you won't get a taste of Italy here, it well worth a visit and a good value too. It is also very vegetarian friendly!

This restaurant is hard to review, because it was so uneven. Some dishes were absolutely wonderful; others were served almost cold and even after being sent back returned tepid. Service was poor, and the owners ignored us while fawning over the table immediately nearby. We were also rushed out at the end of the meal. There are better places to eat in PG.

Yikes.. Service was great - very nice and accommodating. Food - um, not so much. I thought it was just me (thinking food was salty) until the person next to me said - wow, the food is really salty here..
