How can you screw up Italian food? Nothing creative or inventive. Same old Italian with heavy sauces and tasted reheated. Bread was not good. They need to try some rosemary & Garlic in their bread ~ or something! Husband had Canole's and I had vegetarian...More

The views from this restaurant are great. But the food was only okay and a bit on the pricey side. The price of a bottle of wine was ridiculous. The marinara sauce was too tomatoy. The calzone was overcooked, as was the meat. The server...More

We offer a separate Gluten-Free menu with over 10 entrees.
