We order baked ravioli - loaded w/ cheese, Chicken Parm, Manicotti, and salads. Salads were fresh and large, sauce was good, all in all better than any chain and good home style Italian food.

Not too noisy even with a party in the back room and good food for everyone with friendly staff. Service is good.
