The food is always so fresh, very home cooked meals. The wait staff are ever so pleasant at any time of day or night. Take out orders are extremely quick. Gnocchi with sauce the best!!! Can't wait to go back....

We went there this past Saturday. We haven't been there for awhile. We ordered a small margarita pie as an appetizer. My girlfriend had the scallop appetizer as her entrée and I had the Angus burger, which comes with a salad. Everything was hot fresh and very good.

Fresh food, great chef using simple and clean preparation. Special are my go to for dinner, yet you can never go wrong with the pizza and pasta dinner. It's BYOB, so it makes it a very economical dinner choice!

Casual and super friendly atmosphere with absolutely great food (very tasty at good prices = value)! I had the blackened tuna and my partner had fried cod, very fresh. Our friends ate scallops, pasta, and 8 oz. burger, and everyone really enjoyed it. We still had some room for a sweet treat, and so orange and chocolate gelato (a scoop... More
