I went on a Wednesday night, parking is across the street. The service was excellent, food was very good, and everyone made you welcome. I would go back again, and again.

Super friendly and attentive staff. The menu has a lot of traditional foods and a variety of options. Patio seating is nice, but sits just off a busy roadway. Be sure to try the flaming cheese appetizer!

Quaint restaurant dated but that is part of the charm. Very ethnic so you think it will be very traditional. The food was very average at best. We started with the "flaming cheese" it looked good and for 12-13 dollars a nice portion. The cheese...More
