Actually she does say that often. This place is one of our favorites and we live walking distance from it. Insightful and delicious Italian food from long-time employees, in an intimate setting. Race time finds this place packed, and in other seasons- guess what? It's...More

This is a fantastic family place owned and run by a wonderful Italian family. Their food is always fresh and creative and their attitude is welcoming.

The hotel manager recommended this restaurant and it was a block from the hotel. It was nice and cosy with white table clothes on the table. The waitresses were very polite and service was speedy. However, the food was just average.

Very nice casual Italian restaurant. The food stands on its own had chicken parm and my wife had pasta primavera. Service was good, felt like a nice cosy family restaurant. Again when you find a good restaurant you go back twice which we did.
