Recently, I went to the restaurant for a post memorial service for a dear neighbor. The staff was so accommodating and sensitive to our group's needs. Everyone was made welcome. The buffet was ample and tasty as always. Truly an Italian treat!

I've been wanting to go to this place for awhile. When I saw it on Groupon, I immediately bought the special. The food was amazing as was the staff. This has easily become our new favorite place to eat.
