Guys I just recommend This place! Go, order the seafood pasta and enjoy. Never eat something tasteful like this. Words aren't enough to describe this place

Nothing fancy, just very good food with a friendly staff. The caprese was excellent. My wife's pesto dish was really good (I sneaked a bite) and my veal was perfect. Highly recommended.
