Excellent date night dinner location. The restaurant is small, elegant and quiet enough to have a conversation with your dining companion. Food is delicious with good portion size, not too much& not too little. We even saved room for delectable desserts.

A nice little restaurant close to our Hilton Garden Inn hotel. From the small menu, my wife ordered pizza while I chose the ravioli. We started with the Caesar salad which was one the best in a long while - very authentic, complex dressing. The...More
