Ate here 2 nights and didn't disappoint. The Veal Marsala was wonderful as well as the lasagna. The only problem was slow service. However, if your there to chat, they give you ample opportunity to do so.

This place never disappoints. It is casual and simple and the food is delicious. My favorites are the NY style calamari, Dominic salad, and the lobster ravioli. The sangria comes in a giant goblet and it’s the best. The service is adequate and the prices...More
