My daughter and I enjoyed a great meal here with perfect service. The menu had lots of choices and the ambiance was great. Not a bad thing to say about this restaurant. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in town.

Great ambiance. Friendly and professional wait staff. Excellent crusty bread. Outstanding calamari fritti and salads. Owner/chef really cares about his customers. 10% off entire check prior to 7:00pm.

We have been going to this location for years. This year we took advantage of their restaurant week special. The service was below average, the food only average and the noise level is loud. It was a good value for the food, but a disappointment.

Very tasty pasta and friendly staff. Beet and arugula salad is one of the best I have ever tried. Authentic pasta and ragu sauce.
