Unfortunately this restaurant is now closed. It was a good place to eat, but left town in 2013. Angelini's Italian Restaurante is now the only Italian eatery in town.

Service was good. Food quality could improve, it was of poor taste-it seemed like it was microwaved. Wife had a dirty spoon and the table we sat at was wobbly. Prices are about averge for this area, about 12 dollars a plate for dinner.
