Efficient service, good prices. Food was fresh and well prepared. Lots of places to choose from in town but this one is solid.

Stopped here on our first night in PA. Food and drinks were very good, especially the pasta. Service was also very good.

Went with a group of 15 people and the staff was very accommodating! The 2 for $10 drink special was perfect and the food was delicious! It was beautifully prepared and tasted just as great. Atmosphere is very welcoming!
