Early dinner/ beat the crowd. I had Chicken Parmesan. It was good. The marinara was not my favorite but it was a good meal. Husband had Crab Cakes. He enjoyed them. We had good service and we ate on the side patio.

Judging by the number of people waiting to be seated when we left I’d suggest pre booking is a good idea. We were lucky and managed to sit outside. The highlights were the great service and delicious g&t cocktail. All the food was nice and...More
