Went on Monday night and took advantage of the 2 for 1 dinners and a bottle of wine. Excellent service very good food with coffee and split a desert under $75. Nice size portions. We had the chicken parm and the sweet Italian sausage.
The wine was a California Chardonnay
I will definitely go back.

Come here regularly as it's hard to beat, and it's been a regular stop for 19 years for us Recent expansion and dressing up of "al fresco" area makes it even more appealing. But the M/T/W special remains outstanding. Here tonight with 8 celebrating a 90th! birthday - dinner, 4 bottles of wine, coffee and shared dessert came to less than $60 a couple. Service was outstanding with an especially nice, friendly waitress. Continues to be the best value in the state and now even nicer.

We ate here the evening before the 10 miler. Pasta, meatballs bread and spumoni were all great. Our server also helped us find a good place for fish.
