We went there once and than we went again - and again and again. The atmosphere with all the candlelight, the wooden tables and floors and the very friendly staff was great and the food excellent.

We came for dinner one night. Everything looked good but we ordered the pizza and wished we hadn't. It wasn't very good at all--crust was bready and not flavorful. All the other food that came out looked great and the dessert was divine. Unfortunately, they...More
