This was a great find! Very comfortable, nice atmosphere and very private for being just off the Main Street. Large menu with lots of selection, great wines and excellent service. We split a pizza and salad and both were fantastic- thin crust pizza and done...More

The pasta with seafood is the best I have tasted in a long time. A hood glass of whine and friendly service make the experience complete. Try their tiramisu to complete your visit.

The food here was quite good. Lots of Italian food options. We had Lasagna and a Asparagus/ham/cream pasta. Very nice flavours, would like more garlic and herbs, but still was quite good. The servers were amazing and the food was good.

It really does help that the owners are friendly and from Italy! The seafood is fresh, the pasta is homemade, and the desserts are to die for!
