Previous restaurant has a new owner. Pino has been in the area a while but still sports a strong Italian accent. VERY friendly host! We both had an ensulata milados, perfect! Garlic knots are to die for also

Wow, authentic Italian with menu selections Including Osso Bucco, and Handmade Gnocchi. What a find, an ample wine and beer selection that would satisfy most diners. A great local favorite which will not disappoint.
