Ate there once had a fillet of beef melt in your mouth. My friend had chicken parm with angel hair pasta which he also claimed was delicious. Parking could be a little tough. The owner takes real pride in his place.

We have one of four in our party who is vegan. Do you have any dishes that you can prepare without meat, fish, poultry or cheese?

I don't think so. There is a separate room though. Would be a nice place for a party though.
