Small, quaint restaurant on Main Street. The menu was varied, with a wide selection of appetizers, both cold and hot, salads and entrees. Service was attentive and kitchen was fast.

Very nice lunch. We brought our own wine which kept the tab down. The pasta was melt in the mouth fresh and the mozzarella salad was super fresh. Excellent value for money.
