Excellent Italian Food. Fresh ingredients. We ate here twice on our recent vacation. The lasagna is excellent as are the meat balls with mashed potatoes. The warm focaccia is so tasty with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The desserts are fabulous especially cheesecake. It is a small place with good service and friendly staff.

From the wonderful and friendly staff to the amazing food, this is worth a stop for lunch or dinner. Be prepared for a bit of a wait as there is not much seating. Make sure you ask for some of their homemade bread as it will make any meal better. The meatballs are wonderfully prepared and this feels like Italy!

Being from Argentina we have lots of Italian restaurants which are really good. We stopped for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food here. The atmosphere is great, very good service, and terrific food. I highly recommend this place!

The inside is small so make a reservation or even better, sit outside! Had a fabulous dinner sitting outside on the patio watching the world go by. Loved the meatball dish; the focaccia on the side was delicious too. The servers were very friendly and the ambiance was welcoming. Go here to have a wonderful dining experience!
