This was our fifth visit and don't know if we hit an off night, but our experience last night was far from acceptable. We were a party of four. Our waitress was attentive but our meals were nothing like we had experienced before. Two ordered Veal Parmigiana over spaghetti. The veal was thick and the spaghetti was very sticky with too much sauce. Another had veal piccata which the veal was so small and thin and the sauce was bland. The side of angel hair pasta was also sticky and appeared to be heated up. Our fourth dinner was one of the specials, Cosa Nostra which was so spicey that it couldn't be eaten. All of these dinners had been ordered on previous occasions and were enjoyed that's why we went back and ordered them again.

My husband likes pizza. We saw this restaurant on our way to Elizabethan Garden so on our way back, we had to stop. We ordered the Hawaiian pizza and it was truly good. Service was good. We sat close to the window and it was fun people watching. Our server was very friendly and helpful. If I remember correcly, her name was Sierra. This is a small town where everybody knows everybody. When we told her about Paul who was our waiter a day before at another restaurant, her face lit up and said that they were classmates.

The marinara sauce was fabulous; spicy, not sweet. The pasta was cooked just right. The wait staff is friendly and efficient, and the prices are reasonable. It has a nice, subdued atmosphere. A very nice place for lunch or supper.

Very good food! Linguine al Pescatore and Flounder Boscaiola were the best entrees we had in the Outer Banks. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Food and service were very good. Kind of hard to spot while driving so keep an eye out.
Best place to recommend I have been too so far.
