We had dinner here and were greatly impressed. I had the pink ling with asian salad and it was superb. Paul had crumbed scallops and was impressed. Great ambience and service was as speedy as could be expected considering the crowd. Will certainly return.

We had the Parmi and vegetable lasagna. The Parmi was exceptional, the chicken cooked to perfection. The vegetable lasagna was ok but nothing to rave about. The staff were very friendly.
