All of our dishes were excellent, Chicken Vanetino and Veal Parm. Great taste and the right size dish with a side salad or soup. We visited at 5:00 so parking behind the restaurant was not a problem, after that it is valet only. Highly recommend!

Nice atmosphere, white table clothes. I had the Eggplant Parmesan, it was very good. The eggplant was on top of delicious spaghetti. Very good service.
