This is our go to place for Italian food. They make their own mozzarella cheese and offer a wide variety of pasta dishes including gluten free. Charming and quaint dining room with friendly staff, good wine list, and reasonable prices. They also offer take-out.

The experienced Culinary team of Chefs John R. Mannino & John M. Mannino (Father & Son Respectively) have partnered with Sommelier Daris Gavin to open New "Olde World Style" Italian Bistros. The goal was to give patrons Great Italian food at a reasonable price point with wine choices to match.
