Great food, very fresh, large portions, great wait staff. And the garlic bread was wonderful. Went with friends for lunch and was not disappointed. Will return when back in town.

Ordered food to go and waitstaff didn’t get bothered. Did order some bruschetta and salad while we waited. Definitely fresh ingredients used here. Bruschetta was excellent. The ravioli, fettuccine alfredo and chicken parmigiana were exceptional.

Stopped by on my way through town and enjoyed a very nice dinner. Reasonable selection of wine by the glass. Menu was simple, food was home made and very good. I will be back!

We ate here at 7 PM on a Sunday night. Shared calamari appetizer, spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread and salad. We thought the bread was HEAVY on the Parmesan cheese, but enjoyed everything else.

We ate here on a busy Saturday night. We waited about ten minutes for our table at the bar. The bar tender was attentive and made great drinks. Once seated, our waitress was very friendly. I had the special, seafood in a spicy Alfredo sauce,...More
