Portions are good sized and a reasonably good value. It would have been better if a salad was included. Warning, they do not take AMEX and this... More

Very good food, with some unique Items--like the smoky cream tomato sauce. Arincinis with that sauce were delicious. Generous, crisp and good Caesar salad, with anchovy (per request). Pasta Compagna was unusual and tasty vegetarian dish (penne in light garlic with dried cranberries, pecans, roasted cauliflower and asparagus.) They don't take reservations, but we arrived before 5:30 on a Tuesday... More

Absolutely recommend this restaurant for some of the... More

We called at 1 PM on Saturday for a reservation at 5 PM for 20. We quickly received a confirmation call. At 3 PM we called to increase the number from 20 to 28. Kale was wonderful working with us so we could continue our wedding weekend with our family and friends. Once we arrived we were quickly seated. Dalton... More
