If looking for good Italian..keep looking. Marsala dish and rolls only thing we could consume.BIG disappointment, red sauce bitter, stuffed mushrooms gritty and tasted like bread crumb filled mushroom. Save your money, there are far too many good authentic Italian restaurants.More

The food was very good, the experience was not. We had reservations, but were still seated in the corner of the side room behind a partition all by ourselves. The area smelled musty and not a pleasant eating experience. Nobody around us, nobody could even...More
