I had the calzone and it took up the entire plate. It was absolutely delicious. My Aunt had their artichoke special and couldn't stop raving about it. Staffing could be a bit more attentive though.

In town for meetings with Wayne County, found this spot on a web search. Fantastic! I had a killer dish with grilled shrimp, with garlic, olive oil, mushrooms, and rabe that was top notch. Highly recommended!

I feel sorry for the owner serving such horrible foods. Clean and quaint inside. We could not find freshly prepared food on this menu.
