Not my choice because I've been there before. Was hoping something changed in the last 15 years. Nope Same old menu, same old typical food.

Unique dining experience inside a converted church from the 1800's. Family-run business with home-made italian cuisine. And Friday night is karaoke starting at 8pm until midnight. Always a good time whether you come to sing or just listen to the local talent!

The food was good, as well as the service. The atmosphere is quite unique! A bit on the pricey side, but worth it.
