Not your run of the mill Italian Food. Tip: Call first and see what they are serving! They change their menu daily based on fresh ingredients available. Home made gelato tops off the evening!

Pleasant restaurant with high ceilings tiled floor. The friendly owners cook and serve the food along side the waiters. The meal is fresh to order, so relax and have a glass of wine, it is worth the wait! Our favorite is the antipasto salad!
