Came for our wedding anniversary dinner. From the bruschetta to the cannoli so delicious. Our waiter was on point for everything. We had the spinach risotto and veal piccata. Amazing.

We loved our waiter, Willie. The food was excellent and the desserts were even better. Make a reservation. Try the cream puffs for a light dessert. They have a courtesy car for groups dining after 7PM.
