I was here for an event involving family. We had a buffet, and the only thing I was thinking was if this food was great, what was on the regular menu not found here in the buffet! EXCELLENT food, and a caring, friendly staff.

Primavera's less formal sister restaurant has great food although the menu rarely if ever seems to change. On busy nights everyone seems to know everyone. Prime local gathering place.

Had dinner with another couple and unanimous-food was excellent. Four very different dishes from pork chop giambotta to broiled fish. Solicitous waiter. Good drinks. Simply great experience ten minutes from home.
