This was our one "nice" dinners and we were not disappointed. It was super busy and it took a while to get our food. Our server recognized that and gave us a complimentary glass of wine. I would definitely recommend the grilled seafood /pasta dishes.

Nice restaurant with great pizza. We had the 4 seasons thin crust pizza and it was very tasty. They had live entertainment - a duo on Spanish guitars roaming the place.
