We went for dinner and had 3 different pizzas and a pasta dish for our 6 person table. All the food was very good! The service was a little slow, so potentially understaffed, but they worked hard and we enjoyed it!

I've eaten at this place maybe 10 times over the last 20 years. Never had anything bad. Its just good food. Reasonably priced. Right in the heart of the Village. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Husband had seafood salad and he really liked it. I had tortellini and it was “meh”. However, the service was outstanding!
