Wow, authentic Italian with menu selections Including Osso Bucco, and Handmade Gnocchi. What a find, an ample wine and beer selection that would satisfy most diners. A great local favorite which will not disappoint.

Cannot honestly reccommend. Others have given good reviews so perhaps it was a new cook, a bad night?

Restaurant serves good Italian food and the servings are very generous. The garlic knots are especially delicious. We ate lunch there and were pleased overall.
