This is the traditional Italian dinner that is delicious. Veal Parmesan, chicken piccata and Marsala. The atmosphere does not represent how good the food tastes. Reasonable price and good food. Enjoy

Very plain and unpolished appearance, but great food. I loved the chicken Gorgonzola and my wife raved about the chicken Marsala. The staff was very attentive and responsive. I can't say enough good things about them.
