From the owner, Tom, who is such a magnanimous guy to the music offered on weekends, the options as to dining areas, the outdoor tables in season and the wide selection of favorite Italian dishes... you can always rely on this local favorite stop.

No BYOB. They have a bar now. I don’t think you need a reservation. I have never had one unless it was a very large party.
