I would eat here once a week and try something different each time if I could afford it. I had the Pollo alla Parmagiana (chicken Parmesan) with spaghetti marinara. Fantastic! My friend had the Pollo Marsala and said it also was delicious

Went with friends; they wanted Italian, and I wanted a steak. I was blown away by the filet and especially the mushroom cream sauce that was served with it. The chianti was great too. This my new favorite filet in town.
