My wife loved her lobster thurmador but I got a fish dish with pasta and it was so-so. Overall it was the pasta sauce that turned me off. The owners are very friendly as is the staff.

Pizza wasn't great but the pasta is always good. Really nice service. We've visited several times and enjoy coming for dinner or lunch. Even if we arrive a bit later than their lunch hours, they always serve us and make us feel welcome.
