Great little restaurant with good Italian food. The bread you get at the beginning is wonderful. I haven't had anything I didn't like there. Nice atmosphere there also. Good romantic place for a date.

Appetizers are $8.00 to $12.00 and meal is from $14.00 to $28.00. No expensive for a resturant like this and the value for what you get.
