Dinner was very good. I had the pesto anelli and it was delicious. It met my expectations. The staff were very nice and efficient. The portions are perfect size, and there wasn't a wait. Overall, my family and I enjoyed this restaurant. 👍🏼

Small indoor dining area but the better seats are outdoors where you get a breeze and overlook the harbor (which is past street and harbor parking area). Salad, pasta, wine and dessert is the way to go.

Had a fabulous dinner right on the water. If you want to get one of the cozy small tables by the window recommend you make reservations. We started off with Bruschetta and tomato which was delicious. We were served the house bread with roasted pepper...More
