First time here with family, place is a little dark but we had a nice table by a window. Food was very good, enjoyed the covered meatball sandwich, which was tasty and quite filling. An overall good experience

We have eaten here twice when in town visiting. Great homemade soups, and specialty sandwiches as well as traditional Italian dishes.

We have been many times this summer and enjoy it immensely. We usually sit in the bar so we can eat and play quickdraw. It's always fun. Service is great. Staff are knowledgeable and engaging. Food arrives quickly and is plentiful and delicious.
