Individual pizzas and lobster bisque ~ super yum. Desserts, tiramisu and cannoli, are a must. Enjoyed the ambiance and great service!

It's not Chicago or "The Hill" in St Louis, it was the best Italian meal we've ever had in Cape. Come in before 4:00 and you can enjoy half price cocktails, wine and appetizers. Quite a savings. The generous Lunch portions average about $4 less...More
