Enjoyed dinner (half rack of ribs) - the portions were very generous, the meat was extremely tender, and the barbecue sauce was phenomenal! I only wish the hotel room provided a refrigerator where I could have saved the leftovers for lunch the next day!

We ate dinner here twice during our stay....excellent both times. Pizza and salads the first night and Pasta and salads the second night. We started with Martinis that were excellent and finished with their Gelato which was really tasty....hard to decide because too many flavors to choose from. Good experiences all around.
