We visited this restaurant during holiday times, and we really liked it. Service was wonderful; we were there with two small children, and stuff was so accommodating, kind and understanding. Good food, good location.

Fresh tomato pasta ought to taste like fresh tomatoes lightly seasoned, but this one was ordinary. Spaghetti with marinera sauce didn't make it either. It was average. Nice outdoor dining space should be lovely if the food were better. We had lunch here.
