We were there for a wedding and ate our rehearsal dinner there the night before. It was nice, definitely close to our hotel, and I don't really know what else to say.

First of all you pay for every little thing. This is a local restaurant, we are not in Chicago or New York. The only thing that was better than average was the service. There is much better Italian in this area.

The food is ok. Kind of pricey. Everything is al a carte. It has a small room for a party. It would be a good place for a small bridal or baby shower.
