Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I'm glad you enjoyed the arugula salad and Hamburger Di Pollo; they've always been a crowd favorite. Stop in and see us again :)

My wife and I ate lunch here twice - the most recent in November 2017. They have great panini, salads and soups. The first time I had a whole panini with mozzarella and prosciutto. Although it was delicious a whole panini is too much. I...More

Great service. Nice ambience. Recommended by locals. Gnocchi was wonderful. Flavorful, great texture. Complimentary bread was crusty and even the butter pats tasted like quality. I didn't love the pearl and pancetta Pizza but my companion did. Different tastes!
