As others have said this is a traditional style Italian restaurant. The salad that came with the meal was very basic but the pastas that we ordered were good, cooked al dente and not swimming in sauce.

The servers were friendly and attentive so overall a decent choice for dinner.

Good food at a moderate price. Nothing fancy but good tasting. They have been in business a long time so they must be doing something right.

this is one of those places where the staff seems to never change which gives it a more home like atmosphere, that point aside the food is also really good.

Spectacular? No. Fine for family. the food was good, the service very good, the location easy, the prices quite reasonable. All good. I see that someone else counts that as 4 stars; I count that as 3 stars - right down the middle.
