They take reservations, the staff is very attentive, the food was fantastic! There price point for menu is reasonable, less than I expected. The ambiance is very nice. It would be great for a romantic dinner or any type of gathering.

Had a dinner with family - nice table by window with view of the lake. Had the beef carpaccio to start, it was tasty but a little skimpy. The vodka penne was pretty good as was the chicken parmigiana and lasagna - all main courses...More
