The Union Block is a really good Italian restaurant on the town square. Traditional Italian favorites with some modern twists. Deserts were great - try Marcella's cheesecake.

Wonderful dinner at this local Italian restaurant. The staff was incredibly attentive without being intrusive. We started with meatballs as an appetizer, then shared pasta dishes: one salmon and peas and one Gorgonzola creamy sauce. Both fabulous, and half portions were more than enough. My...More
