Love this restaurant for its heart, as they put heart and soul into their Italian food. Family run, small well run establishment that offers consistently great dishes. A large menu, aiming to please also includes daily specials. Good for family dinners, and celebrations.

My wife and I went for dinner here and we enjoyed our food: she had the Spaghetti Bolognese; and I had the Penne Puttanesca. The bread they provide is excellent, and we liked the Spumoni Bomba that we shared. However, it is a popular restaurant...More
